Good Lord there's another hot mess going on right now in Oklahoma.
April 2, 2018, educators skipped their classrooms and joined supporters at the capitol building. I've not seen solid numbers, but I've read that there were at least 20,000 people there. All this funding nonsense has gotten crazy personal for what's now a majority of the state. I think some of these elected officials have bitten off more than they can chew with all the budget cuts over the years. There's a thing going around about some in the state legislature just "waiting this out" but an even better joke about how educators can go a whole day without using the restroom; This is nothing.
My wife and mom are both teachers. Anne and I have a kid in public school. I'm proud as hell of Oklahoma teachers and what they're doing. I sure wouldn't want to be a legislator in this state right now.
