Stand Up for Public Education in Oklahoma
High-stakes tests are proven to be ineffective teaching tools. They’re bad for Oklahoma education.
Politicians have repeatedly cut Oklahoma’s education budget despite increased enrollment.
Legislators want to replace a functioning teacher retirement system with a volatile 401(k) system.
Education is the cornerstone of Oklahoma’s future, and we believe that by working together to promote public education and bringing important issues to light, we can make a difference in students’ lives. Educators in today’s public schools are doing a remarkable job of educating Oklahoma’s children, and OEA advocates for their interests and advances the profession by fighting for the individual and collective rights of all education employees.
