-Professional Oklahoma Educators: “Our Students Need Their Teachers”

Not all teachers are participating in the illegal Oklahoma strike, just as not all teachers went on strike in West Virginia.  Ginger Tinney, Executive Director of Professional Oklahoma Educators, the largest Nonunion professional educator group in Oklahoma, takes a stand against the illegal strike currently in its fourth day.  The AP article appears on 7 News WHDH.

Now these teachers face a tough question as the walkout threatens to keep many schools closed for the rest of the week: Do they risk losing public support for their efforts, especially after lawmakers handed them much of what they asked for?

Still, some question why teachers are continuing to stay off the job after lawmakers approved new money for schools and raises.
