Panelists at the Oklahoma Watch-Out forum were Estella Bitson, principal of Hawthorne Elementary School; Dallas Koehn, teacher at Union 9th Grade Center, and Meredith Brown, teacher at Disney Elementary School, all in Tulsa.

A panel of educators, joined by teachers and representatives from education and public-policy groups in the crowd, spoke in emotional and sometimes emphatic tones at Wednesday’s public forum, “Oklahoma Watch-Out: Straight Talk With Teachers.”

Below are video highlights. A written story on the public forum, held at Baxter’s Interurban Grill in downtown Tulsa, can be found at this link.
