The 2018 legislative session kicks off today, but thousands visited the Capitol complex on Saturday to march for schools. They chanted “Save our Schools” and held signs with phrases like “I’ll care for you tomorrow if you invest in me today.”

Retired public school teacher Carolyn Kavanagh joined the march. She says she wants to see more public school funding and resources.

"Teachers now have so many different types of children in their classrooms without enough resources, so they can reach every child.  I just wish people would honor the profession, pay them what they’re worth and stop making teachers political footballs," Kavanagh said.

Joining us now is Dawn Penich Thacker with the group Save Our Schools Arizona.
