Thousands Of Teachers Planning Rallies And Classroom Walkouts

Tens of thousands of public school teachers in Kentucky and Oklahoma plan to attend rallies on Monday at their state capitols in what they hope will be the latest display of muscle by the nation’s educators demanding higher wages and better classroom resources. The demonstrations come less than a month after West Virginia teachers went on a nine-day strike that ended with the governor there signing legislation giving them a 5 percent pay hike — their first raise in four years. The planned rallies also come on the heels of one on Wednesday in which 2,500 teachers in Arizona — who are demanding a 20 percent raise — demonstrated at the state’s capitol in Phoenix.

Taylor Swift Defends Hayley Kiyoko After Fans Call Her Out

Taylor Swift has come to the defense of Hayley Kiyoko after some Swift fans thought Kiyoko was taking a shot at her with recent comments she made. During a March 30 interview, Kiyoko said,”I’ve had several music industry execs say, ‘You’re doing another music video about girls? I literally looked at them and was like, um, yeah… Taylor Swift sings about men in every single song and video, and no one complains that she’s unoriginal.” While some fans thought Kiyoko was throwing shade at Swift, Taylor quickly shot down any notions of bad blood between the two, commending Kiyoko for her comments. “We should applaud artists who are brave enough to tell their honest romantic narrative through their art, and the fact is that I’ve never encountered homophobia and she has,” Swift wrote. “It’s her right to call out anyone who has double standards about gay vs straight love interests.”  You can check out Taylor Swift’s Tumblr post in the article below.
