A group of South Florida teachers said their students do not have enough resources for learning as school begins Monday in Miami-Dade County.
Teachers gathered over the weekend at Betty T. Ferguson Sunday and called on lawmakers to provide adequate resources for their students.
“Public education needs more funding, and we need a government in Tallahassee that believes in public school teachers, and I’m here to support that,” said Broward County teacher Denise Soufriene, according to a report by 7News.
Retired teacher Liz Schurak said the implications of properly educating students stretches outside the classroom.
The teachers who attended partnered up with the City of Miami Gardens, as well as the Florida Education Association and various other organizations.
