FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Teachers with the Fort Wayne Education Association said 8 hours is more like a round the clock thing.
"We're paid to work 8 hours. We work far more than 8 hours everyday, and we're out here to show you that we do that everyday," Shannon Fisher said.
The color red has meaning behind it.
It's “Wear Red For Ed”.
That's why you see everyone in the same color including fourth grade teacher Shannon Fisher who said she and her colleagues deserve better from the state.
Organizer Renee Albright said it's going to take a lot to get lawmakers attention, and teachers can't do it alone.
With lack of funding on top of the teacher shortage, many are worried about the future of public education.
The teachers said they've been to the state courthouse, but lawmakers aren't listening.
They are urging everyone to call legislators to tell them their concerns.
