RedForEd Teacher Walkout April 26th 2018

Red for Ed


The teachers have been speaking with the governor and the government to have more funding for schools and higher salaries. While Governor Ducey has made promises to fund education and increase pay by 20% by the year 2020, a majority of teachers would like to see this happen sooner and see more. RedForED will require some help from our local businesses, churches and groups!

Since the walkout is looming, many businesses have stepped up to the challenge and are welcoming children into their businesses, groups and churches. Many of the places will have some fees, but children will be safe and cared for should the walkout close schools. Please call to check availability for childcare for the RedForEd Camps!

Also, we are on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and will continue to find out more information! Thanks for following!

Although our family is a homeschooling family, we are very involved with our community and schools and know that this places a hardship on many families. We have put together a growing list on Facebook of places that you can find childcare.

    Hi Vickie i just confirmed that the Chandler/Gilbert YMCA is also offering child care so that can be added under YMCA’s. I also shared this post on the “love Mesa Life” and “Living Chandler” Facebook groups so you may get some comments with some east Valley additions. Thanks for doing this!!! 🙂
