Oklahoma teachers end strike with school funding goal unmet

Teachers take pre-school classroom on wheels to Federal Heights                      Major King

The OEA chose to end the walkout with $479 million in funding for the next school year - less than what they'd hoped to achieve, Priest said in a news conference.

Schools Superintendent, William Hall, said on Tuesday that the sticks were largely symbolic - a "last resort" for teachers who want to fight back, not just hide and wait. He said Fish moved things out of the way so the fight could last longer.

The teacher-led rebellion over low wages and funding cuts has spread from West Virginia to Arizona, Kentucky and Oklahoma. And as several school districts announced they would reopen either Friday or Monday, some teachers said they would ignore the OEA's message and continue the walkout. "And it bothers me that so many teachers work so hard to get where they are. that this wasn't a teacher but he was in that role".

The headmaster of a Florida Christian school is calling for "prayer for all of the families involved" as one of their teachers is accused of having a sexual relationship with a student.

Thousands gathered and marched in a pitcket line outside the Oklahoma state Capitol building during the third day of a statewide education walkout on April 4, 2018 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Fallin drew the ire of teachers and education supporters several times throughout the walkout, mostly for belittling teacher demands for additional education funding by comparing them to 'a teenage kid that wants a better vehicle'.

Oklahoma teachers end strike with school funding goal unmet

On the fifth day of the strike, Priest offered to end it if the Legislature passed bills eliminating a capital gains tax exemption and Governor Mary Fallin vetoed a bill repealing a hotel and motel tax. I thought these kids are just being rambunctious, I thought they just needed an out. "We can't call it a success just yet".

Priest, however, maintained that the group's members are "ready to return to the classroom".

Jordan said he didn't see any tax increase measures coming before lawmakers, at least not in the coming days.

"We got here by electing the wrong people to office", she said. "He added that he and the students are close in age and said 'I'm immature".

Larry Frederick, a music teacher at Lincoln, said he helped organize the walk-in "to raise awareness of the needs for education and raise support for public education in Arizona".

Alberto Morejon, the eighth grade social studies teacher at Stillwater Junior High School who started the Facebook page organizing a walkout that now has nearly 80,000 members, wrote that Stillwater teachers will still be at the capitol on Thursday.
