Several teachers made their way to the state Capitol on Monday morning, demanding more funding for education.

Teachers and parents in Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kentucky and Arizona have staged collective actions in recent weeks, seeking higher wages and education spending. Student living and learning conditions are central to the work teachers do.

"Teachers are grateful for the raises, but that's not all we need". Teachers are marching because elements in the Colorado legislature are intentionally undermining public education.

"A week ago, I would have told you I wasn't going to do it", said the 48-year-old Army veteran who has worked in public schools for 18 years, as he drove to the state election board office to submit his paperwork to become a Democratic candidate in this fall's election.

Still, few people in the state seem to know many details about how their local schools perform or the way the state funds its schools - something that hasn't changed much over time.

"We, as staff members, are not here trying to boost our salaries".

The Oklahoma City-American Federation of Teachers, which like the OEA opposed the strike from the beginning, acknowledged Friday that a poll it had conducted showed overwhelming support for the continuation of the strike.

Explaining why she was still on strike, Rachel, a third-grade teacher, told the WSWS, "My only objective is for my students. You're not in the military or the police force where they drill it into you". "And teachers deserve that as well, so we can be the most effective teachers that we can and we can provide for our students in a way that they deserve".

Some district teachers will head to the Capitol. "I have to use my teacher voice".

Speaking to the publication, Ragini Bajaj Chaudhary, India CEO, Gray Matters Capital said, "We see Chrysalis as one of the most innovative, mission-driven and student-centric educational enterprises in India, which has the potential of bringing about a tangible change in the way education is imparted in our schools". Every day is an adventure that I wouldn't want to give up. At 10 a.m. CEA members will start meeting with their elected senators and representatives. "We've turned a whole generation of Oklahomans into political activists now", he said.

He also listed in broad terms his legal work in the dozen years before he began working for the Trump Organization in 2007. Prosecutor Thomas McKay told the judge during a sidebar session on Friday, "This is a fast-moving investigation".

Among other priorities for teachers at the Capitol is a call for legislators to commit to a freeze on corporate tax breaks "until school funding is restored or until per-pupil funding reaches the national average".

Any increase in education funding would need to come from other programs, since the state can not increase taxes without a public referendum.

The struggle in Oklahoma will be immeasurably strengthened through establishing a network of rank-and-file committees across the country to prepare a nationwide strike to defend public education against both big business parties, which are squandering trillions on corporate tax cuts and new and even bloodier wars.
