April 10: March for Education ends as teachers walking from Tulsa to Oklahoma City arrive at Capitol.

The Department of Basic Education responded to a DA Parliamentary Question, saying that it would support the declaration of a minimum service level agreement for teachers by the ESC to ensure children are not left unsupervised during school hours. "As I meet with principals on a regular basis, I continue to push them in that direction".

Hansen identified seven other states that "share these economic factors and thus may also be at risk" of statewide teacher strikes. Others have announced plans to run for office.

Party spokesman Tres Watson tweeted a photo of the sign covered in red spray paint.

The sergeant asked Levesque to provide Montville police with all cellphone videos and electronic data, such as emails, the school had about the fights, but the superintendent, citing school policy, declined to do so without a search warrant, police said.

And resident Nadene Kumph said, "I grew up in this town and I've never heard of anything like that happening before".

In the morning, hundreds of teachers gathered in a wing of the Capitol for an impromptu meeting to share ideas for continuing the movement. Most teachers and school staff arrived on school buses, disembarking while the Crosby Stills, Nash and Young song "Teach Your Children" played from some loud speakers. Fish's bail was set at $75,000, the Hartford Courant reported.

Administrators at Twin Rivers R-X school district want to train select teachers to be school protection officers.

"While opponents of the education funding package have uncovered a way to block the measure, they would be taking a major gamble moving ahead with a veto referendum", he said.

On Friday, April 6, lawmakers passed two bills to fill most of the $50 million hole left from the repeal on the $5 hotel/motel tax.

It could even, we guess, get them suspended or fired, given that teachers have no collective bargaining agreement and no formal labor representation.

The teacher-led rebellion over low wages and funding cuts has spread from West Virginia to Arizona, Kentucky and Oklahoma.

For some, the teacher walkout continued for at least one more day.
