Teachers in Fayette County did not let the winter weather stop them from standing on the picket line.

They stood out in the rain and snow to voice their concerns with the state legislature. Senate Bill 451 may have been killed in legislature Tuesday, but teachers are taking precautionary measures with the legislature right now.

Tony Daniel is a Fayette County teacher. He said they stood outside since the early morning. He also said he is waiting to see what state legislature does with education reform. 

“We want qualified teachers, we want kids to have materials and things they need, and we want to have successful public schools for everyone,” Daniel explained.

People in the community showed their support by delivering free pizza and other foods to the teachers standing in the winter weather.
