Day Two Of Oklahoma Teacher Protest At State Capitol

Posted: Updated:

It's the second day of the Oklahoma school shutdown with teachers from across the state heading back to the state Capitol to begin demonstrations again Tuesday morning.  

The Oklahoma Education Association says they want a plan to replace a $50-million funding hole left when lawmakers repealed the hotel/motel tax.

They also want the state Senate to pass legislation that would allow ball and dice games in Oklahoma casinos.

That would generate another $22-million.

They also want lawmakers to repeal the capital gain tax exemption.

Organizers of teacher walkout says they are really stressing the importance of packing the inside of the state Capitol Tuesday, in addition to picketing outside.

"We need to show up in large numbers again. We need to be respectful, but loud.  We need to make sure they cannot ignore us," said Alicia Priest.
