Colorado Education Association cancels upcoming Day of Action over coronavirus concerns

Concerns over the coronavirus have prompted the Colorado Education Association to cancel its Day of Action at the Colorado State Capitol later this month.

The annual protest typically brings hundreds of Colorado teachers to Denver as they collectively push for higher wages and increased school funding among other educational issues.

Denver Public Schools and Jeffco Public Schools, among other school districts, had announced that classes would be canceled on March 19 because of the popular Day of Action.
