Not The Onion PA School District Is Arming Teachers With Little Baseball Bats To Stop Shooters

The Oklahoma Education Association on Thursday called for an end to the teacher walkout after nine days, as negotiations with state lawmakers for additional dollars to education reached an impasse.

Oklahoma teachers frustrated after years of swelling class sizes and funding cuts to public schools have streamed into the state Capitol not just to protest, but also to run for political office.

The hundreds of Oklahoma teachers that gathered to rally, may have also used that time to decide they want to add another task into their lives.

Priest said that Republican senators refused to "move an inch" when it comes to finding more funding for education.

Some parents, as sympathetic as many were to the teachers' fight for education funding, were struggling to figure out how to get childcare as the strike continued.

Malone said with more funding, comes the possibility to do things like provide pay raises for staff members.


Pennsylvania teachers say the mini baseball bats they got from the district after the Parkland massacre probably won't do much to keep students safe. "It bothers me that so many teachers work so hard to get where they are and that this wasn't a teacher but he was in that role". "Despite tens of thousands of people filling the Capitol and spilling out onto the grounds of this Capitol for nine days, we have seen no significant legislative movement since last Friday".

But the teachers argued that while they were grateful for the pay raises, they also needed money for classroom repairs, new supplies and updated textbooks. "I just thought these kids were being rambunctious". Priest lauded the passage of two bills last Friday that raised $40 million in additional revenue for schools.

"This is actually the best day because we've gotten knocked down, but we are still standing".

"Those lawmakers are refusing to cross the finish line", Priest said. We are somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,000 teachers short of what we need, so we have long-term substitutes.

However, several dozen Moore teachers returned to the Capitol to great applause, a sign that not every teacher was ready to end the walkout. "We demand action against the teacher who beat the child".

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". "At the time, based on the initial video that I viewed and the information I was provided, I didn't feel that this was a law enforcement matter".
