Oklahoma School Teachers Planning A Statewide Strike: Report

Oklahoma public school teachers have been planning a statewide strike to take place in the coming weeks, according to Tulsa’s KTUL.

The report states that more than 25,000 people have joined the Facebook group “Oklahoma Teacher Walkout – The Time Is Now!”

A group of educators met on Friday to discuss the strike.

“We are to the point where we have no other option,” one teacher told KTUL.

According to KTUL, teachers have grown frustrated with the government’s lack of action on increasing teacher salaries.

“Frustration levels are high, so a strike is not a touchy word anymore,” Molly Jaynes, an Oklahoma City teacher told KTUL. “I think we have surpassed the point of conversations, and I don’t think that there’s anything the legislators have provided us recently to give us any sort of hope that they’re going to take actual actions this time.”

While talking about solutions to gun violence in schools Trump suggested arming teachers and giving a bonus to the ones who do carry.
