  • Oklahoma superstar chimes in about teacher walkout

"And it seems insane to me that we have to go to those lengths to get basic supplies".

Kids representing 31 elementary schools in the Oklahoma City Public Schools system compete for free. She wasn't even alive for the 1990 teacher walkout, but she'll have extra reasons to remember the spring of 2018. The other half are non-native Spanish speakers. Its executive director, David Duvall, was really living the life, raking in $152,091, above most school superintendents' pay. At the same time, their classmates can learn Spanish with help from Latino peers. Large districts like Bartlesville and Moore Public Schools will reopen today-but not without a fight.

"We have had a team of volunteers helping to bring these programs to different sites as they are needed, giving students something a little different to do and helping relieve some pressure on the full-time staff at these sites", he said.

"I was raised to think of the idea of "the deaf benefit", that it's not a disability".

The state's largest teachers union has called for the walkout to continue until the Legislature comes up with more money for schools. "The bilingual second-grader can pick the main topic out of a paragraph better; the bilingual second-grader can take multiple perspectives better". "You see that and you don't have to sit there and take it, you can stand up and make a difference".

Cindy Gaeta, the daughter of Chilean immigrants, is one of the lead march organizers.

Parents Nichole and Nathan Dill took their five kids - who range in age from 2 to 9 - for a stroll in Oklahoma City's Myriad Gardens on Wednesday with campuses for their school-age children in the suburb of Newcastle closed.

Hoffman also told authorities that she had sex with the boy before taking him to the Capitol for a teacher walkout last week and before she dropped him off at home later that evening. "I want to support our teachers and our district, so here I am".

"It's easy to feel very defeated and disgruntled, and as an American history teacher, to feel that way about politics is a new feeling for me", Custred said. She said she would like to see more Spanish speakers in teaching, but said many potential immigrant teachers were steered away from the profession because of low pay, and because they could not access higher education to get necessary teaching certifications.

"All the teachers here are passionate about what we're doing", Patel said.

A strike by Oklahoma educators demanding more school funding entered a 10th day on Wednesday, as the state's Republican leaders warned they plan no further increases after approving $450 million in new revenue to boost teacher pay.

According to CBS News, the teacher walkouts are happening simply because the teachers can no longer afford anything. "They don't get media attention".

Renee Jerden, a choir teacher in Norman, Oklahoma, experienced similar support.

In a massive and complex operation coordinated by the Tulsa Area United Way, dozens of community organizations have worked together to open at least 150 locations across the metro where out-of-school students can find various services, including day care, meals and educational activities.
