Oregon public school teachers, families and students rallied Monday in front of the state Capitol in Salem to call on lawmakers to increase school funding.

The rally was part of a national “Red For Ed” movement urging more public school funding. Participants wore red T-shirts.

They’re asking the Oregon Legislature to fund smaller classes and allocate more money to hire nurses, counselors and teaching assistants.
