INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Thousands of educators and supporters showed up at the Indiana Statehouse on Tuesday for Red for Ed Action Day.

The day is a national movement for which education is advocated.

More than half of Indiana's school districts closed to allow teachers, administrators and community members to attend the event - totaling what was expected to be a gathering of more than 15,000 people.

The teachers and administrators had three goals in mind:

  • Better compensation
  • A temporary hold on teacher and school evaluations based on ILEARN
  • Removal of a 15-hour externship requirement to renew their teaching license

While only a fraction of educators had the opportunity to speak at the Statehouse today, many used signs to express their feelings.
