Ep. 10 - A bus full of teachers

Teachers usually try to stay out of politics.

That is changing, especially when it comes to school safety.

Across the country, teachers and students have been standing up to say, "Enough is enough."

On this episode of our podcast, Eric joined a bus full of teachers on their trip to the nation's capitol to march with students from around the country to tell our elected representatives that they are demanding change.

Whether it is an inner-city or suburban school, the threat of gun violence has only grown, and no one knows better than our teachers of the toll it has taken on the students. 

This is the first of a two-part series that Eric recorded on his trip to take part in the March for Our Lives, one of the largest protests in American history. School security, mental health, poverty, and more come up as the teachers talk to our host and each other about why they are marching and what they would like to see done next.

 

 We left for DC as the school day ended on Friday, March 23 and made a marathon run to our hotel before getting up early and marching on the capitol.

 The bus was filled with teachers, principals, guidance counselers, reporters, and friends from the community.
