Governor Doug Ducey said he won't increase taxes and he said the twenty percent increase teachers are demanding is not likely to happen. "And I'll tell you the people that are playing politics, they want to walk out". "Time away from school doesn't mean going hungry", he added.

Contreras's daughter attends a Tulsa public school, where she is taught in English and Spanish. Bartlesville Public Schools, with an enrollment near 6,000, announced it will reopen on Thursday.

Bishop says it doesn't necessarily have to go to education this year either.

Many schools will continue to be closed on Wednesday, including large districts like Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Edmond.


KFOR-TV reports Moore Public Schools held an emergency meeting Wednesday night because teachers were angry with their superintendent's decision to resume classes.

Oklahoma City teachers may not be in the classroom, but they are still on the sports field.

Dunham works as a cashier and has had to use personal days to stay home during the walkout.

"A lot of them, the only meal they get that's hot is in school", Burdette said. They are requesting a $10,000 pay raise over three years. "I'm not mad about it". Rep. Scott Inman (D) tried to get this repeal on the floor on Tuesday during a House session, but 56 representatives voted against it, according to Fox23 News.

In fact, House leadership once again made it clear that capital gains would not be taken up this year. Fallin encouraged lawmakers to turn their attention to other issues. Fallin also approved a bill that repealed a hotel tax, a measure that teachers wanted vetoed.

The teacher walkouts in these states have inspired educators in Arizona to consider a strike over their demands for a 20 percent salary increase.

The atmosphere outside the Capitol on Tuesday remained festive as schools set up tents and performers took the stage. CN citizen and kindergarten teacher Paula Unger was among them.


Parkerson, who teaches first grade, said the idea for the playdate was born at one of the rallies.

While lawmakers took up bills last week on a third-party internet sales tax and ball and dice casino gaming, this week has lacked a focus on specific legislation.

While Kentucky teachers were protesting the pension overhaul last week, the state Legislature passed changes to the tax system called House Bill 366.

As Pratcher noted, teachers need to watch the actions of the politicians, as their words are seem to be receptive enough to the teachers.

"That's just over ten percent of our staff", Chapman said.
