Wrapping Up Teacher Walkouts

Education reporter Hank Stephenson debriefs the Red for Ed movement.

The state spending bill that boosts teacher pay may have ended the educators' walkout, but not the Red For Ed movement. Hank Stephenson, a reporter who covers education policy for the Arizona Daily Star has closely followed the teacher protests. Arizona 360 invited Stephenson to debrief the many aspects of the walkout.

Stephenson explained how the budget will benefit both the movement’s organizers and Gov. Doug Ducey despite the compromises made.

“Both sides can walk away from this and say, ‘We didn’t get everything we wanted, but it was a win’ and nobody is lying in that sense,” said Stephenson.
