OSBI: Clinton Public Schools teacher accused of having sex with student

Oklahoma superstar chimes in about teacher walkout

Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest posted a video Monday night on the organization's Facebook page, noting the Oklahoma Highway Patrol estimated around 50,000 people were in the walkout crowd on Monday.

Teachers, students and others from across the state have been protesting in the state Capitol and elsewhere for more than a week demanding increased education funding.

The strike has closed public schools serving about 500,000 of the state's 700,000 students. The work-stoppages in Oklahoma and Kentucky were the second phase of rebellion by educators this year, after West Virginia teachers ended a nine-day strike almost a month ago.

The new taxes and revenue approved by lawmakers translate into an average teacher pay raise of about $6,100.

Hoffman also told authorities that she had sex with the boy before taking him to the Capitol for a teacher walkout last week and before she dropped him off at home later that evening. Yesterday afternoon, GOP lawmakers said a measure to eliminate the state's capital gains exemption would not be heard this session.

A major cause of budget strain comes from tax breaks Oklahoma granted to its energy industry, which were worth $470 million in fiscal-year 2015 alone.

Opponents of the tax hikes, including Oklahoma Taxpayers United, argue that lawmakers could boost education spending by cutting bureaucracy and waste rather than raising taxes.

The non-partisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said Oklahoma's inflation-adjusted per student funding fell by 28.2 percent between 2008 and 2018, the biggest reduction of any state.
