PHOENIX — A large number of teachers advocating for higher wages and better treatment lined the streets near the KTAR News 92.3 FM newsroom Tuesday as Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey had his monthly interview at the station.

Ducey sits down with KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac & Gaydos each month to discuss issues hitting the state.

Arizona Educators United and the Red For Ed movement have been leading the charge on statewide protests and walk-ins for weeks, including protests at KTAR News 92.3 FM’s studios as Gov. Doug Ducey appeared on Mac & Gaydos.

All of the protesters were wearing red as a part of #RedForED, a movement started by Arizona Teachers United to show support for the state’s teachers and to demand schools be fully funded.

The governor was scheduled to interview at 5:15 p.m., but around 200 protesters filled the sidewalks around 4 p.m.
