O Arizona: Our Educators Protest Another Raw Deal

Teachers and public school supporters gathered on the State Capitol lawn Saturday morning, to speak out against what they call a Republic deal crafted behind closed doors.

The amended budget proposal includes tax decreases and cuts to education and other government programs.

"Ultimately it's not even about the teachers that have lost their jobs, although that's a tragedy itself, but it's about the students - the parents," said David Hill who received a RIF notice from Scottsdale Unified School District.

Protesters called the recent budget agreement between the legislature and the governor a back-room budget deal.
