On this West Virginia Morning, during the course of the past week, teacher rallies have sprung up around the state, as the West Virginia Education Association and the American Federation for Teachers continue discussions with members about possible strikes or walkouts.

While increases to PEIA premiums and deductibles are some elements feeding those talks, teacher pay has been another flash point around the Capitol. Dave Mistich reports.
