Oklahoma Democratic Party Stands Behind Teachers

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party released the following statement as teachers prepare for a teacher’s walkout on April 2:

Oklahoma Democrats are proud to support our teachers as they stand up for their rights and a better future for Oklahoma children. Oklahoma teachers have not had a pay increase in over ten years, and many are leaving the state for better-paying jobs in other states.

When we invest in education by increasing teacher’s pay, reducing classroom sizes, and adequately funding our schools, we invest in the growth of Oklahoma.

The ODP applauds the tenacity of our teachers fighting against too many years of funding cuts.
