[UNFILTERED] Moore Teachers Promote Better Classroom Funding Along SW 19th Street

Posted: Updated:
MOORE, Oklahoma -

Teachers in Moore gathered along Southwest 19th Street to promote their desire for better classroom funding.

[UNFILTERED] reporter and University of Oklahoma student Mandy Lee was at the protest, which was met by car honks and cheers from passers-by. Moore Public Schools will be closed on Monday, April 2, as part of a statewide teacher walkout.

These teachers will be in Oklahoma City, at the state Capitol, protesting the need for bigger classroom funding and better pay for support staff. Many of Oklahoma's state employees will protest that day, too.

If you're a teacher, student or parent in the Moore school district, share it with a friend on social and let them know about [UNFILTERED] -- a new community journalism project highlighting a partnership between News 9 and the University of Oklahoma.

The goal of [UNFILTERED] is to provide the most thorough coverage possible of stories that matter to Oklahomans.
