Our Favorite Signs From the Teacher Walkouts in AZ and CO

March for education!

Teacher Protest Signs from CO and AZ

Last week tens of thousands of teachers and their supporters gathered for huge rallies in Colorado and Arizona. As teachers marched to their state capitols to advocate for increased funding for education, spirits were high and teachers were definitely using their outside voices! Decked out in a sea of red, teachers displayed poignant, clever, truth-telling teacher protest signs. Here are some of our favorites. 

1. Talking percentages.


2. Protesting—Seussian style.


3. Not just talking the talk.


4. Making the point with a little play on words.


5. Pointing out the big picture.



6. Acronym of the day.


7. Because teachers are superheroes.


8. I said don’t make me …


9. You do the math.
