Teacher Rally

Oklahoma City, OK – OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Hundreds of Oklahoma teachers are expected to attend today's rally at the state Capitol as they ask lawmakers to boost classroom spending and preserve their pensions. Legislators are considering a measure that would change teacher pension systems and do away with an appeals process for fired educators. They've also warned a $500 million budget shortfall could cut into education funding.
