Winter-like temperatures and overcast skies failed to dampen the will of thousands of teachers, school administrators and public employees today at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
Mostly bundled in woolen gloves and winter hats, the demonstrators on hand sought better pay for teachers and state employees, more funding for education in general and the attention of politicians whose latest offering has been roundly rejected as too little, too late.
Coverage from the State Capitol will continue as long as the teacher walkout. For previous stories about today’s events, see a collection of social media snippets as well as Alexandra Goodman’s story about Edmond students attending AP English classes at the rally.
