Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest said the teachers' efforts and "overwhelming support" from the public brought $479 million more for education.

Defiant teachers spent the rest of the strike loudly jingling their keys in the capitol, chanting: "Where is our auto?" They might even call themselves the ironic 1 percenters, since that's how much Gov. Ducey initially offered.

With almost 40,000 members, the Oklahoma Education Association represents many, but not all of the state's teachers.

Also on Friday, thousands of teachers, other school workers, public sector workers and supporters descended on the capitol in Frankfort, Kentucky to defend their pensions.

If there is a walkout, it could be a long one: Teachers statewide are demanding a 20 percent raise from the Legislature. Many teachers defied the KEA mandate, angrily stating on social media that they would stay out until their demands for pensions and education funding were won.

Students are responsible for catching up on the work they missed when they return to class, he said, just as the students would if they were absent for a sporting event, band concert or other extracurricular activity. The repeal of the $5 tax on hotels and motels meant the loss of about $50 million in projected revenue. "Recent discussions focus exclusively on education funding and exclude public safety, veterans' services, mental health, protective services or any other state agency services".

"We are proud of what we have accomplished, but truthfully there's no one left to negotiate with in the statehouse", said Ed Allen, president of the Oklahoma City American Federation of Teachers. Other districts sent delegations but kept classes open. The state will also allow ball and dice gambling, which will be taxed.

"We must support candidates who have helped us achieve our goals and vote out those who have not", Priest said. After their passage, Republican lawmakers warned they would be the last revenue measures heard on their floor. "In addition, they have protected Oklahomans, especially small businesses and farmers, from an irresponsible capital gains tax".

The Australian Education Union (AEU) will present state and federal ministers today with a letter signed by nearly 6000 parents and teachers, urging a better deal for government schools.

Instructor Amy Jenkins organized an Indian taco fundraiser in Elgin over the weekend, selling over 300 tacos and collecting over $4,000, which was donated to teachers who needed money for fuel, food and hotel stays while at the Capitol.
