SC for Ed is organizing the All Out On May 1 rally, saying lawmakers have not done enough this year to help teachers after promising education reform.
In a statement, the group says a 4 percent raise for teachers in this year's proposed budget is not enough. They also are upset the General Assembly has not passed proposals to reduce class sizes, guarantee teachers at least a short break without students and add social workers and counselors.
A similar rally is planned for North Carolina on May 1, where a number of the state's larger school districts have canceled classes.
