Tulsans Respond To Teacher Rally

From the superintendent in Pretty Water, school districts across Oklahoma are not sitting pretty. Jeff Taylor says his district's budget has been chopped 150 thousand dollars annually since 2008. He says you might hear things like too much money is going for administrative costs.

"When you're talking about the copier for the administration that's administrative costs and people see that and think all that money is going to the superintendent but that's not the case," Taylor said.

As thousands make their voices heard, Maxine Horner, Former State Senator says "by us being on the other side of the state we need representation."

Horner says there is more at stake than students missing a day of instruction.

"It just strengthens the argument if you're on the floor if your people are over there voicing their opinion for the needs of Tulsa."

It proves there is power in numbers.

"I think they're trying to make it crystal clear that the public schools right now are on lifeline support."

Pat Bruner is a community leader who says we've lost our priorities in public education.

"If I went down here to Rib Crib I could draw up 5 conversations on sports but if I tried to draw one up on education the priorities are very weak toward education."
