Teacher Walkout Day 9

By Heide Brandes

The OEA has taken out permits through next week to continue the walkout at the Capitol. She wasn't even alive for the 1990 teacher walkout, but she'll have extra reasons to remember the spring of 2018.

"I also march around the Capitol at least twice and I try to meet teachers from another district".

According to CBS News, the teacher walkouts are happening simply because the teachers can no longer afford anything. As she is new to the classroom, I wanted to hear about the ways in which this experience has shaped her. "I think the teachers deserve more pay for the hard work they do, but for parents, this is not so easy".

Ashley Barker, a pre-K teacher, said her students embraced her and didn't want to let go. "We'd be willing to come out here as many days as it takes, but some of our school systems are calling us back". Bartlesville Public Schools, with an enrollment near 6,000, announced it will reopen on Thursday.

Many education professionals say bilingual schools are critical to integrating immigrants.

"Our community has been steadfast in its support for its schools, and we look forward to continuing the momentum on behalf of our students". Schools in Oklahoma City and Tulsa were shut on Wednesday.

Some teachers admitted there was growing pressure on schools to reopen, especially as state testing is underway and families continue to feel the brunt of the closures. He says the district has been participating in the walkout for a good cause, but it has brought them many controversies.

On Tuesday, Dunham dropped off her children at an Oklahoma City church that had been providing drop-in care during the walkout.

"I'm just here to encourage the representatives because they're being bombarded", Dr. Taylor said. Numerous states that have aggressively cut taxes in recent years have also made it hard to raise them again. "I'm not mad about it". As a result, the states' general funds have taken significant hits over the last decade, down 35 percent in Oklahoma and 30 percent in Arizona.

A November report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that Oklahoma cut roughly $1,000 per pupil over the last nine years. "They're at the Capitol trying to fight for more money for the kids but showing up to schools in the afternoons for practice and showing up on weekends to play the games". Lawmakers did give teachers a one percent increase this year, and the governor has promised another one percent for the coming school year.

The Oklahoma Education Association, the state's largest teachers union which is part of talks with lawmakers, is asking for an additional $25 million in funding, a different figure from the day before.

The state's Department of Education has extended the dates because of the walkout. "Right now, we can't adequately teach them with the funding that we have".

The central bank boss and President Hassan Rowhani have both been criticised for the slide in the currency, which comes as U.S. Some had bluish skin, a sign of oxygen deprivation, according to a statement, symptoms consistent with chemical exposure.

At one point, elementary teachers from Moore had gathered their students on a lawn outside the Capitol for a quick social studies class. Axing the capital gains tax deduction would generate about $120 million annually.

Instead, he said he would continue meeting with school district officials and lawmakers to pass his budget proposal, which adds some new K-12 cash but not almost enough to meet the teachers' demands.

Teachers said that wasn't enough. There has also been movement on smaller revenue-raising bills that began to reverse years of cuts.

"We had a moment of silence to begin our day, just like we do on a normal day", Morgan said.
