What's Happening Now

Pres. Linda Hampton's statement to the media after Gov. Fallin signs HB 1749 into law

“We are disappointed in Governor Fallin’s decision today to sign HB 1749 into law, but we aren’t surprised. This issue has always been about attempting to silence the voices of education employees.  We applaud those public servants with the courage to point out that our state's fiscal policy is bankrupting our public schools.  We applaud those public servants who recognize that sending public tax dollars to private schools or for-profit charters is not in the best interest of all of Oklahoma's students.

“In signing this bill, Governor Fallin and the legislature believe they have found a way to stifle those voices. But the 35,000 members of the Oklahoma Education Association will not be silenced. We will continue to speak out, strongly and frequently, as advocates for Oklahoma's public schools and students.”
