"As teachers, we've become complacent. I want them to get off their butts and do something". A large contingent filled the Rotunda. There are 40 schools in the Poudre School District, and about 30 have signed up to do a walk-in.

"It's because of the (funding) cuts", she said.

"We're not where we need to be", she said. The teachers also won pay raises for support staff such as cafeteria workers and bus drivers, and secured $70 million in recurring revenue for classroom supplies.
