So in the past few days state teachers have secured around 479 million in funding and raises. They asked for about 506 million. Three of the five bills they supported passed; unheard of success any time you are talking about the legislative process. Even though it is 95% of what they asked for, it evidently is still not enough.
Now the OEA is insisting the walk out continue until another 25 million is secured and these measures are defeated. The OEA says HB 1398XX will put the burden of school on local communities. They say HB 1044XX will not use the Commissioners of the Land Office to pay 500 dollars per classroom. but 45 dollars per class room. They say HB1046XX may consolidate districts with less than 400 K people, but would eliminate local control.
As I predicted the OEA has once again moved the goal post. Moore Schools head back Thursday. Will the OEA loose the support of other districts?
