Some 6% said the harassment was by a manager, and 2% said it was by a parent. Education is indeed a top priority for our state. The amounts are built into the minimum salary schedule and are not a one-year stipend. The bill changes teachers' defined-benefit plan to a hybrid plan with features of a traditional pension plan and a 401 (k)-style savings plan. How about Tuesday and beyond?

Teachers hold a rally outside the Senate Chambers in the West Virginia Capitol on Monday. But on Thursday, some began rolling back those plans.

After learning about the impact of the budget crisis on local schools, Summers decided to make a video supporting the walkout.

"Poteau schools will be closed Monday so teachers and concerned citizens can go to the Capitol to push for more money for education", Brennan said. The survey is being conducted by the Facebook group Oklahoma Teacher Walkout - The Time Is Now!, which has more than 72,000 members.

Governor Mary Fallin signed the $424 million tax plan Thursday evening.

How will the pay raises be funded? .

Despite the raises, the state's largest teachers union, the Oklahoma Education Association, called it "incomplete", reports CNN.

"Our kids they deserve better", said Leighow. One state representative argued that the bill had a $75 million hole in it before taking the repeal of the hotel and motel tax into account.

Beth Wallis, an assistant band director who teaches in a Tulsa suburb, said teachers in her district voted unanimously to stay off the job beyond Monday. Legislators had only hours to digest that bill before it was passed, and many apparently did not have time to read it.

State lawmakers strike a deal to give teachers, on average, $6,100 annual raises and to give raises to state workers. Lawmakers were soon joined on the floor by Fallin, who vowed to sign both measures as soon as possible.

"We need more money for education", said Cole. They haven't talked about years two and three. The union says the state will have to increase salaries and school funding significantly if it wants to stop losing teachers to Arkansas and other nearby states that pay better.

Tinney said many Oklahomans would be thrilled to receive a $5,000 raise in a year.

"What our organization will do if the Legislature passes a significant pay plan for teachers is a matter of speculation, but no decisions have been made", the organization said in a statement. It's more or less the same story that played out in West Virginia, where tax cuts forced educators to forego raises while their health care costs increased.

One respondent said a pupil filmed up her skirt during a lesson, while another said inappropriate, untrue and unsolicited comments from a male counterpart caused such an impact on her family life that she and her husband subsequently divorced.
