The Ponca City Board of Education passed a resolution affirming its support for school teachers after Oklahoma teacher walkouts moved from rumor to possibility.  The resolution also encourages the Oklahoma Legislature to find the money to fund salary increases.

The teachers according to the Oklahoma Education Association, plan to walk off the their jobs April 2 if the Oklahoma lawmakers do not meet the demands of the OEA.  The demands include a $10,000 pay raise for all teachers, and a $5,000 pay raise for all school support staff.
