Oklahoma Teachers End Nearly Two-Week Strike

Educators fired after mocking autistic student in audio recording

"We have created a movement and there's no stopping us now", Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest said Thursday.

Tatum says that she is anxious that lawmakers will simply repeal the measures that they passed to fund education when teachers are back in school.

In Arizona, the moment of truth has not definitively arrived, though teachers are threatening a statewide walkout if a broad range of demands (similar to those of Oklahoma teachers) from pay raises to retroactive education funding restoration are not met.

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

The concerned mother further said after the teacher made the comments, students started pointing at her daughter, who is bi-racial.

On Thursday, the Oklahoma Public Employees Association also announced that state employees will no longer participate in the strikes.

"We know that it can be expensive to go see a physician and the clinic is going to provide a much more cost-effective solution both for our plan members and for the school district", said Supple.

She said teachers in her district feel strongly that they should keep walking.

The officials said they were "confident" in the intelligence, but "not 100 percent sure" about it, the report added. Using poisonous gases against one's own people is far from acceptable and we can't just sit passively and watch.

Oklahoma teachers walked out after enduring no pay raises and repeated education funding cuts since 2008.

The substitute teacher was later barred from the school.

"I didn't necessarily let them do it". Fallin signed the repeal of the $5 hotel/motel tax and Republican leadership in the House reiterated their desire to not hear the capital gains exemptions repeal in their chamber.

The union that coordinated a almost two-week walkout by Oklahoma teachers invited members to return to work on Friday, declaring victory with the work stoppage while acknowledging not all its goals had been met. They said lawmakers just needed to raise another $50 million in revenue in order to call off the walkout.

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

Jordan said he didn't see any tax increase measures coming before lawmakers, at least not in the coming days.

The demonstrations over the last two weeks brought attention to dire conditions in some Oklahoma public schools - left to wither in disrepair and lacking basic supplies. "We demand action against the teacher who beat the child".

Superintendent Malone also said that the district will continue monitoring the situation in Jefferson City, with more information being made available within the next month.
