Jerry White addressing the assembly of teachers

The survey also showed that teachers spend an average of $656 annually out of their own pockets on classroom supplies, including pencils and binders. A $2.9 billion education budget was signed into law prior to April 2, which was the first day of the statewide walkout.

"We have more and more students coming to us who have trauma, abuse, neglect, or complex histories that impact their ability to learn and responds in ways that we're used to", Smith said.

Some educators are still expected to lobby today at the Oklahoma Capitol. He has witnessed lawmakers repeatedly pledge to give teachers raises and restore funding, only to be disappointed. "In the summer I'm working a second job as well".

School buses are rolling and school bells are ringing.

Instead, it involved children in discussions and watched movies with them. Two children were taken to the hospital by their parents, where they were treated and released. Bevin said people misunderstood his statement.
