OSSBA statement on education funding and teacher pay

Statement from OSSBA Executive Director Shawn Hime regarding education funding and teacher pay:

“Our hope is legislators will unite and act swiftly on a plan that will encourage Oklahoma‚Äôs hard-working teachers and keep them in the classroom. Every day that passes without a solution for long-term education funding and competitive teacher pay exacerbates an already devastating teacher shortage.

We are committed to working with legislators to find solutions and urge all Oklahomans to contact their legislators in support of increased education funding and teacher pay.”
