Teachers and advocates for more education funding set up booths across the Phoenix area on May 19, 2018.

The deadline is rapidly approaching to gather enough valid signatures to put the Invest in Ed tax increase measure on the Arizona ballot in November.

That measure is closely connected to the #RedForEd movement, which included teacher walkouts and walk-ins in the spring.

On Saturday, #RedForEd gathers again at the state Capitol for a rally and signature gathering effort.

Elementary school teacher Noah Karvelis, one of the leaders of Arizona Educators United, joined The Show to talk about how things are going.
