What's Happening Now


“While we are disappointed in today’s passage of HB 1749, we are not surprised. We thank the 16 brave senators who voted to support education in spite of immense pressure and outright bullying by special interest proponents of this bill. We’re confident that the OEA will emerge an even stronger organization. Attacking teachers and support professionals will only serve to unify our members. We’ve been around for 125 years; we’ll be around for 125 more.”
