Pennsylvania School District Gets Beat Up Over Mini Baseball Bats

14 Avril 2018

A former substitute teacher is charged with supervising a student "fight club" at a CT high school, police said Thursday. "Let's be familiar with our duties as outlined in the said Act and its regulations so that the public has little to accuse us of", he stressed.

In announcing an end to the walkout, the Oklahoma Education Association said it was now focused on the November elections. They approved these bills after the state of Florida did so last June and Rhode Island in 2016. And when they would vote on education measures, or even try to bring them up, they were voted down. The teachers won an average of $6,000 raises, with $1,250 raises for support staff.

Some major districts have said they will resume classes on Monday.

Because education is the one investment that cannot be taken away, one could argue that investing a little more makes sense.

The Oklahoma teacher walkout has officially ended after nine days.

"We had solidarity. And then we would go in the capitol". We need to really reassess what we are doing in our schools and what is truly best for our children. Tonight, our union will hold a telephone town hall meeting with our members to discuss the situation and listen to what teachers have to say. Teachers applauded the passage of millions of dollars in new education funding, but they are also returning to their classrooms without the full raises or classroom funding they demanded. Reporters at the capitol said that in the past couple days, crowds began to shrink.

The militant mood of teachers was spelled on the signs they were carrying Friday, including, "OEA doesn't speak for me", "The movement didn't start with the OEA and won't end with the OEA", and "We're not leaving". They reiterated their want for lawmakers to pass the bill ending some exemptions on capital gains taxes.

OEA president, Alicia Priest, said that Republican senators refused to "move and inch" when it comes to finding more funding for education.

"We must work harder than ever to elect education champions who will put students first", Priest.

Hundreds of teachers have gathered on the front steps of the Capitol before a 9 a.m. rally.

The bats are part of the district's overall response, outlined with the acronym TROJAN- Threat assessment; run; obstruct and barricade; join forces; attack; and never give up. Watson told The Associated Press he assumes the culprit was someone marching with the teachers, since they have been wearing red.
