Back in early March, everyone assumed today would be the first day of a perhaps multi-week teachers walkout over low pay and general cuts to education funding in Oklahoma. But now, with Mary Fallin and Oklahoma lawmakers agreeing to a head-scratching $6,000 teacher pay raise that somehow increases the GPT and still ignores our state's many other funding issues, I don't think anyone really knows what's going on.
Either way, Badger and I thought it would be fun to make a Teacher's Walkout Bingo Card (full size) for today's chilly events at the Capitol. Check it out:
If you're going to the Capitol today, be sure to print a couple of sheets for your friends to play during those long, boring moments when everyone is just standing around complaining about the cold weather. If you complete a full card and are a teacher or school employee, The Lost Ogle will give you a free Tuesday night buffet at any participating Mazzio's Pizza location.
