Day 6 of Oklahoma teacher walkout

Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Deborah Gist speaks at a rally before education funding advocates set out on a 110-mile weekong march to the capitol

They are receiving massive support and solidarity. Although teachers made significant progress on meeting their goals since the strike began, they say lawmakers need to do more to ensure schools are well funded.

It continues, "I do not understand how I got here but I have turned myself in to face my consequences, because it is the right thing to do.I know I have left you at a place of dismay and with no closure and I apologize for that".

Outside the station, about 200 to 300 teachers protested. "We stand firm, and we've got to have funding for our schools". There are countless others who we have lost to other careers, other states-and there's no way to quantify the number of potential unbelievable teachers that never even gave the profession a chance simply because of the money.

Karvelis said earlier that the group sees no choice but to move to walkouts. "It's not good for the kids, it's not good for the teachers, and it's not good for the state". Many school districts in the state have cancelled school and some districts have cancelled classes going into Wednesday.

Teachers wanted a repeal of the capital gains tax exemption, which could provide the state with more than $100 million in revenue. Republican Gov. Mary Fallin defied them and signed the measure, while urging lawmakers to turn to other business. That concession from the state legislature didn't meet the teachers' full demands, but it was a huge win considering the state legislature hadn't approved a tax increase since 1990. While Senate leaders said it will not add any income to this year's education funding, the Oklahoma Education Association said it would help in the long run. Arizona teachers are among the lowest paid in the country, according to federal data.

A strike by West Virginia teachers ended in a raise last month and has prompted educators in other states to consider similar action. "They're not given the opportunity to make enough money to do that", she said.

"In the wake of the school shooting in Florida and the ongoing epidemic of gun violence plaguing our nation, we must continue to advocate for common-sense steps to help make our communities safer", the NEA says.

That high school senior, David Hogg , responded by suggesting that people offended by Ingraham's remark contact her advertisers. Hogg responded on Twitter by urging his followers to petition advertisers to tug ads from her current.

Ducey is sticking with his plan to slowly boost school funding, promising a 1-percent teacher raise and $100 million in funding for districts this year as a start to restoring almost $400 million in cuts. Sulphur schools said they will remain closed until at least Thursday. The letter, addressed to students and obtained by KFOR, reads: "I am sorry to say but I will not be returning to school as your teacher".

The strike has amassed supporters from other fields as well. But when you're deciding on a career at 18 years old, you don't exactly understand how much a dollar buys. The sheer number of people was inspiring-but being around that many people all rallied for the same cause made me so glad I chose to make the trip.

"Everyone has soldiered on", she said.

The walk-ins are organized by a recently formed advocacy group called Arizona Educators United.

"Do not wait anymore", Harris said.

These threats to our democracy and our workplaces come in the midst of new voting restrictions that exclude people of color and the poor from participating in elections, as well as ongoing attempts by state governments and the US Supreme Court to strip away workers' ability to organize their workplaces. She is retiring at the end of this school year after 22 years of teaching preschool at Wilson Elementary in Norman.
