Several weeks ago, an activist who goes by the pseudonym Mike Ladidadi came up with the idea for a statewide teacher walkout scheduled for Nov. 4. The plan was to give teachers the opportunity to express their dismay and demand change.
After creating a Facebook event for the idea, fellow activists began volunteering their time to the cause, creating a website for the event and organizing local meetings. Now, according to the Facebook event, several hundreds of teachers are set to attend.
