Fix All In One Week Unrealistic, Says OK Teacher Of Year

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma's 2017 Teacher of the Year doesn't think the school shutdown is the way to go about getting lawmakers to meet their demands. 

Jon Hazell said he was disappointed with what he was hearing from other educators. 

So, he and about a dozen other Teacher of the Year finalists met with lawmakers. 

He said after talking with them, his group supports teachers going back to the classroom.

“When it's been 10 years and a billion dollars of cuts you’re not going to get that back in one bill or one week. That's unrealistic. That's just my feeling,” said Hazell.  

Hazell said he hopes lawmakers will consult him and his group in the future as they make decisions on education.
