A proposed walkout by Oklahoma teachers if they don’t get a raise has plenty of support in Miami. Miami Superintendent Jeremy Hogan tells News Talk KZRG what he’s learned from talking to teachers.
“The Miami Association of Classroom Teachers..I’ve met with them several times and if (their request for) an increase in teacher pay raise and classroom funding is not met by April 1st, they plan to walk out on April 2nd. I do support our teachers. There have been lots of various measures, initiatives, that have been taken through the years to our state legislature to try to get them to increase funding for education and to give our teachers a pay raise, and we’ve had no success with that.”
Oklahoma teachers haven’t had a pay raise since 2008.
