Oklahoma teacher walkout ends

Oklahoma teacher walkout ends

"Our protesting has made other people interested in the democracy of our state, wanting to be more involved, maybe wanting to help the educational process out".

Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest said the almost two-week-long teacher walkout should be seen as a "victory" since it or the threat that preceded it helped secure teacher pay raises and millions in new funding for schools. The legislature, however, has fallen well short of its responsibility to Oklahoma's students.

It's not OEA leadership arrogance that's given us a walkout, it's the right wing in Oklahoma have turned their back on public education for too long. They're wrong. Lawmakers are simply refusing to cross the finish line.

Moore Public Schools were to resume classes Thursday, according to CNN affiliate KFOR. More than that, the substitute teacher was sacked from the Montville High School for a similar incident.

"Our members are saying they want to go back to the classroom", said Priest, whose union has about 40,000 members.

The district also conducted an online survey to see if the public supports the idea of arming select staff members with guns, if it becomes legal in Pennsylvania. Oklahoma State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister announced on Monday that the state would extend the time period in which students can take standardized tests to prevent the loss of federal funding. None of what has happened over the last three weeks would have happened without the threat of a walkout and the subsequent 9-day walkout.

The funds will come from new taxes on oil and gas, tobacco, online sales, and gambling.

The American Federation of Teachers released the following statement. We are proud of what we have accomplished, but truthfully there's no one left to negotiate with in the statehouse.

With a 3-year-old child and another on the way, Griesel also worries about making ends meet on her and her husband's teacher salaries.

He claimed outside of court Thursday that he didn't organize the fights and that they broke out because he was an inexperienced teacher.

"We need to face reality", said Alicia Priest, president of the Oklahoma Education Association. So our attention will turn to November. "We must work harder than ever to elect education champions who put students first".

Joleen Royer, gifted and talented resource coordinator and a teacher at Sangre Ridge, said they are reminding lawmakers who have been uncooperative that it will be remembered on election day. Those teachers care. That's why they're there.
