By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - Thousands of Seattle teachers have voted to walk out of class later this month, joining educators in nearly 30 districts across Washington state staging rolling one-day strikes for better pay and smaller class sizes, the union said on Tuesday. Washington teachers held a first round of walkouts last month, followed by a rally on the steps of the Capitol in Olympia, accusing the state legislature of inadequately funding public schools or teachers' salaries. On Monday, about 4,000 members of the Seattle Education Association, the state's largest teachers' union, voted to join the action with a walkout on May 19. "There's going to be disruption, no doubt about it," said Jonathan Knapp, president of the Seattle Education Association.
