Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest released a statement about the governor’s signing of House Bill 3705 on Tuesday.
That statement reads:
“Tens of thousands of educators, parents and community members are showing up at the capitol every day because they are overwhelmed by classrooms with more students than desks, duct-taped text books, and schools that are only heated to 60 degrees. This legislation falls well short of fixing those problems. These measures leave millions in revenue on the table and still leave Oklahoma students among the worst funded in the nation.”
