HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Two lanes of Beretania Street will be shut down Monday morning to accommodate thousands of marchers headed to an education rally at the state Capitol building.

Thousands of teachers, parents, students and others are expected to participate in the march, the Hawaii State Teachers Association said.

Participants will march from the Blaisdell Center to the Capitol building to support efforts to "secure a fair contract that attracts and retains teachers as well as lobby for a constitutional amendment that would drastically improve funding for Hawaii's school system," HSTA said.

The lanes on Beretania Street will be closed from Victoria Street to the Capitol building from 9:20 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The march begins at 10 a.m., followed by a rally at 11 a.m.
