Teachers Flock To Capitol

Teachers and others pushing for more funding for public schools are gathered at the Capitol this morning.

There’s been no official crowd estimate, but planners suggest the number could top 25,000.

Legislators inside the building are coping with how to speak with some without offending others.

“We can’t talk with all of them,” said one frustrated lawmaker.

    Who then, is teaching our children today?

    “Teachers flock to capitol” . . . and shortly thereafter to Penn Square Mall.

    Haven’t you heard, our kids and schools are doing great. Just ask the former lobbyist who is now the Tulsa Superintendent. He was one of the first to close his schools. Oh wait, the Tulsa schools received a grade of F. Hmm…

    I look forward to the media coverage to see how many teachers let slip the mask and start talking about teacher salaries as if that’s the actual point of the rally. As always, it’s all about the kids.

    Seriously disturbed by this lack of honesty by the union folks to the day-to-day teachers. There is ENOUGH money! The administrations of each of the 500+ school districts pay for too many “out of the classroom” staff that do nothing to help teach our children.

    But I did notice that a great number of teachers were protesting the overabundance of tests, teaching to the tests, and then being graded by the tests… instead of allowing teachers to teach children to think, read, learn, and be a well educated student. Maybe THAT is another item that needs to be stopped to free up money to pay the teachers.

    I’m just as disgusted with the elected officials who were pandering to these teachers with cute words and press releases, while behind the scenes they continue to push Common Core and testing down our throats.
