TULSA – Teachers in Oklahoma are upset — at low pay, standardized testing, increasing class sizes and policymakers who teachers feel enact changes without providing enough support.

But do teachers really have it so bad? Job perks include great benefits, summer vacations, union support and child-friendly work schedules – not to mention the admiration of many parents and children.

Oklahoma Watch will present a discussion of teachers’ concerns with a group of teachers, administrators and experts at a public forum, “Oklahoma Watch-Out: Straight Talk With Teachers,” on Wednesday, April 30, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Baxter’s Interurban, located at 717 S Houston Ave. in Tulsa.

Executive Editor David Fritze and other members of the editorial staff will moderate the discussion. Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP to events@oklahomawatch.org and come with questions.
