Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy told the Stillwater Public Schools Board of Education that he would financially support it through the rest of the year to help get a plan in place to make the schools safer.
Gundy, who has two children in the school system, addressed the board at a meeting, where many had gathered to learn if the school would support a teacher walkout. His concern, centered on school safety, or the lack thereof.
“I let one (child) off here everyday, and school as we know it, is supposed to be a safe haven. We never had this issue, but unfortunately it’s increasing,” he said.
He added questions for the board. “Do we have a plan in place, and when you go to bed at night do you feel good about it? … If I was in charge, I would have a plan. Maybe not perfect but it would be a plan.”
