Video: PSU Teachers Contract Rally 2.27.14

The PSU faculty (and students) held a rally for a better teacher contract during mid day on Thursday. Their rally with speeches was recorded on 2.27.14 in the park blocks by Portland State University. The reasonable demands are for a student-centered budget, educator-led higher education and a stable faculty for the benefit of everyone at PSU.
