2 largest school districts to stay closed Friday

Millcreek School District Arms Teachers with Baseball Bats

Teachers nationwide call for fairer school funding

OKLAHOMA-Oklahoma's largest teachers union on Thursday called off a almost two-week walkout that shut public schools statewide, saying it had secured historic gains in education funding after school budgets were devastated by a decade of cuts.

Some teachers plan to return to the capitol Monday.

A school district in Pennsylvania has come up with its own plan to protect teachers, and it's raised some eyebrows in the process. But he said he hopes energy from the walkout will change that. Fish told police he only wanted to be liked by the students. In Philadelphia, substitute teachers are employees of Kelly Services, a staffing company, and must undergo screenings, background checks, and training, officials said.

EPS Superintendent Bret Towne said he believes teachers may be selling short what they have accomplished.

He said he raced to the school, where the principal told him "the substitute teacher assaulted your daughter and there are a few others who were involved".

Much like "The Little Engine That Could", teachers across the state left their classrooms and tried their best to get a short list of educational needs fulfilled.

Meanwhile, national attention on what has clearly become a national wave of unrest among teachers and education advocates will now focus on Kentucky and Arizona.

School tour reinforces legislators' commitment to students
How do we make it work? Last year, Fletcher ran 50 miles during the course of the school day in the Lion Pride Run. Pierce said, "A lot of the kids that are participating in this play will also be in Arch's production".

She said her textbooks are from 2004.

The Democrats, however, have proven to be as ruthless an enemy of teachers and public education as the Republicans. The state didn't find itself in this school funding crisis overnight.

In fact, arming teachers may make schools less safe.

That raises public school spending to $2.9 billion next school year, up from $2.4 billion this year.

The actions of the union have provoked an outpouring of anger among teachers.

"In this case, the principal is also responsible", Lam said. "We compliment the school district staff who worked hand-in-hand with us to hold Mr. Knight accountable for his conduct" said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Fish says he felt bad about the whole thing, saying "I would say I feel awful about what happened to be honest".

Canadian Henderson wins LOTTE Championship
Hataoka won the 2016 Japan Women's Open Championship, becoming the first amateur - and youngest - to win a Japan LPGA major. She called it a "big oops" on Friday the 13th. "Mentally I was in a great spot this week", Henderson said.

"They've been out for two weeks, and it's time for them to get back to school", Fallin said in a statement.

"I am not a member because the OEA wouldn't do anything to protect me. It's a business, and they've proven it again".

"I feel very proud", Anthony told PIX11. They deserve new textbooks, they deserve funding, they deserve materials.

After the recent Parkland shooting, there has been a heated debate over whether teachers should be armed.

"When asked if it was more than five times, the victim said 'yes.' When asked if it was more than 10 times, the victim started crying and said 'I don't want to talk about this anymore".

Teacher De la Cruz was planning to teach CPR in late spring just before commencement, but because he had just saved a life through CPR in the fall, he knew he shouldn't delay. State workers (OPEA) drop out of Capitol protest.

Hansen found that economic conditions favoring teacher strikes are more prevalent in the South, in states that "have modest to low levels of teacher pay, deterioration in both salaries and general education funding over the last decade and state-determined salary schedules".
