CHARLESTON, WV- Teachers across West Virginia held a walk-in hoping to draw attention to “The State of Schools.”

There were about a dozen teachers lined-up in front of Stonewall Jackson Middle School in Kanawha County on Wednesday.

Participants say the teacher shortage continues and there aren’t enough school nurses, school counselors, social workers. They want to make sure education is a top priority for Gov. Jim Justice.

“We saw a raise and they’re still working on our health insurance, which we’re really happy about,” said teacher Jay O’Neal. “But now we want to make sure the focus is on our students that they’re getting the services they need. We feel like right now they’re not getting enough, and they need more.”

No classroom time was interrupted. The walk in took place 30 minutes before the school began.
