Thousands of children across Cumbria are off school because of a strike by teaching unions.
The action is being taken in a row with the government over pay, pensions and working conditions.
Teachers from Cumbria have been joining colleagues from the North East for a large demonstration in Durham.
More than a hundred schools are either fully or partially closed and 40,000 children are thought to be affected. The Government says the action is disruptive and holds back children's education.
