Reese Witherspoon Tweets About WV Teacher Walkout


CHARLESTON– West Virginia’s teacher walkout is making national headlines, even reaching Hollywood.

Actress Reese Witherspoon sent out a tweet today in support of the state’s teachers. She included a link to a CNN article outlining the walkout and then stated “I’m always shocked how little teachers are paid. Don’t our representatives know that teachers have one of the hardest and most important jobs in our country?”

Union leaders announced on Monday that the walkout will continue into a fourth day on Tuesday.
