Educators join forces during walkout

Employees from the Camas and Washougal school districts joined forces to raise awareness during a teacher walkout day on Wednesday, May 13. The demonstrating was in protest against the state Legislature for failing to fully fund K-12 education and keep class sizes smaller, among other issues.

Leaders from both unions have emphasized that the work stoppage is not directed at the school districts. The Camas Education Association and Washougal Association of Educators voted to approve the walkout last week at the encouragement of the state teacher’s union, the Washington Education Association.
