NORMAN, Oklahoma - As part of an event for Oklahomans to hear from their state representatives, one of them took a few minutes to talk about the teacher walkout one-on-one.

[UNFILTERED] reporter and University of Oklahoma student Reagan Ledbetter talked to Rep. Jacob Rosencrants (D-Norman). Rosencrants left his classroom as a public school teacher to become a state legislator.

Ledbetter is a student at the Gaylord College of Journalism & Mass Communication.

Rosencrants was joined by his colleague, Rep. Emily Virgin (D-Norman), at an event called "Coffee Chat with the Reps."
