Sign our petition below and join Carri Hicks in advocating for public education at the State Capitol!
We believe that every Oklahoman has the right to a first class education. Not only do our educators and support staff deserve a fair and liveable wage, our students deserve access to the best resources our state can offer. Our Legislature has the responsibility to provide these resources and ensure those who work in our schools are valued. The steps taken last week to give teachers pay raises is a good first step, but it is not enough.
We, the citizens of Oklahoma, ask that you provide adequate funding sources for public education. We need secure and concrete revenue that is dedicated to public school classrooms. We also ask that school support staff see a larger pay increase and that more steps are taken to ensure that teachers in Oklahoma can teach and stay in Oklahoma.
