Teachers across the state will vote this week on whether to walk out for more education funding, according to Arizona Educators United, the grassroots group coordinating the #RedForEd movement.

Organizers late Sunday said educators would vote in person Tuesday through Thursday to determine whether they would follow the lead of teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kentucky.

The group did not specify in their Sunday announcement when, exactly, they would set a date for a walkout if educators voted in favor of one.

Organizers told the 45,000 members of the group’s private Facebook page that they also planned to have another statewide “walk-in” Wednesday, similar to the demonstrations held last week.
