An Oklahoma teacher moved to San Antonio and her salary doubled

An Oklahoma teacher moved to San Antonio and her salary doubled”

It's day seven of the Oklahoma teacher walkout, and the message is not wavering.

In a statement on Twitter, the American Federation of Teachers announced their goal was to transform this moment of activism into a long-term movement for fully funded public schools for our kids and respect for ourselves and our profession.

Teachers are demanding a pay raise and for lawmakers to secure new funding for education while not shifting money from other programs to do so. Gov. Mary Fallin was anticipating a "thank you", but that has not been the case.

Camanche School District Superintendent Tom Parker said the program was so successful at the elementary school they want to offer it at the middle school and high school as well.

The Oklahoma protesters join teachers from Kentucky, Arizona and other states who have been fighting for more pay, better education funding and improved working conditions. "I do not see anything else coming soon if we settle for less". "And I hope that adults would keep adult disagreements and disputes in a separate place, and serve the students that are there to be served", said DeVos, according to the Dallas Morning News, provoking angry responses on social media. "We have made progress, but it isn't enough". Daisy, who teaches in Edmond, told the World Socialist Web Site, "There were way more people than have ever been here since it started". We advocate for children.

Val expressed the determination of rank-and-file teachers to continue the strike for their demands of wage and school funding increases. The minimum salary for a first-year teacher is now $31,600, state data shows. They deserve reading material, math manipulatives, comfortable seating and smaller class sizes so they can have more interaction with their teacher.

"So, I actually was an early childhood major when I first came to NSU but switched my junior year to public relations and advertisement", said Arnold. "The teachers have planned far in advance, but I think rescheduling to get all the students here might be hard on the teachers". He stated that the number of students entering the program has practically cut in half.

Baez said with a master's degree, a specialty in special education and 10 years of experience, she was only making $35,000 a year.

"I planned to walk five miles each day because I didn't think I could do it all", Jacobsen said.

Ferrell believes that the Oklahoma legislature has created a mess and that it will take years to recover, maybe even a generation.
