Teacher protests: Why now, and what's at stake?

Hosted by

Teachers are striking for a second day in Oklahoma, where years of budget cuts have forced one in five schools to operate on a four-day week. In Kentucky, thousands flooded the capital over changes to their pension plans yesterday, but they’re back in class today. In Arizona, teachers are demanding a 20 percent pay hike. They’re threatening to call a strike.
