    American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten will join West Virginia teachers on the picket line.

    Weingarten will join educators on the picket lines at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday at Capital High School, according to a news release from the AFT.

    This comes after officials who represent West Virginia school employees announced a statewide strike will begin Tuesday.

    Senate President Mitch Carmichael sharply criticized education union leaders and made it clear in a series of tweets where he stands on the action called by the union leaders.
