Teachers nationwide protest education budget cuts

Teachers throughout the country are protesting cuts to education funding by holding rallies and going on strike. Teachers in New York City are expected to protest today over cuts that threaten 4,100 jobs, and California teachers have been engaged in a week of protests leading up to five regional rallies scheduled for Friday. In Detroit, education advocates have held sit-ins since April. Experts attribute the increase in teacher activism to the severity of the cuts and teachers' desire to have more say in education.
