$500 Million Bond Jeopardizes Education
Common Education leaders are concerned the bond proposal being discussed will create debt for Oklahoma and jeopardize already cash-strapped state agencies. Tax cuts have already eroded our infrastructure. If the bond is passed, it would:
*Require the bond debt to be paid out of the state general revenue fund starting next year.
*Result in less money and further cuts for education and other state agencies that vitally depend on funds from the state general revenue.
Voice your opposition against the bond.
SB 2100 Still Looms
School Districts already have the right to deregulate. This law is not needed. Teacher working conditions are student learning conditions.
SB 2100 was passed by the house and the senate. Our best chance to preserve teachers' rights and working conditions is to send the bill to conference. This legislation session is scheduled to end May 23rd. We have two more weeks to keep a watchful eye on this dangerous bill. If the bill is sent to conference, our lobbyists can discuss important changes to protect your rights.
TELL YOUR LOCAL SENATOR TO VOTE AGAINST THE HOUSE AMENDMENTS AND SEND THE BILL TO CONFERENCE!
SB 2100 would allow school districts to:
Not follow all state regulations, only a select few.
Eliminate contract negotiations.
Reduce standards for teacher certification.
Eliminate due process.
