Thousands of American Federation of Teachers (AFT) from across the state thronged to the state capitol, Monday March 14th, during Spring Break, to convince legislators not to slash funding and lay off thousands of teachers.

Over 500 teachers from San Antonio chartered 8 busses to transport them to the capitol to join fellow AFT members in their task to contact legislators and make their case.
