GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- Guilford County Schools and other districts across North Carolina participated in “Walk-in Day” on Monday by inviting the community to visit schools and show support for teachers and public education.

Educators, students and parents were all encouraged to wear red in unity.

Guilford County Schools says “Walk-In Day” is an alternative to walking out on the job, which has been reportedly encouraged by some groups to protest low pay and cuts to education funding.

Elected officials, parents and the community as a whole were also encouraged to meet with educators to discuss issues facing public education.
