My 2 Cents: Creative Teacher Walkout Signs
Teachers are known for being creative and you could certainly see that in the signs they carried at the teacher walkout.
There were a lot to choose from, but these are some of the best I saw, including my favorite.
A lot of talk about how teachers have to moonlight to pay their bills and a lot of signs like this one: "My 2nd job paid for this sign".
I like this one too: "I work to fund my wife's teaching habit."
Creative sign here - an Edmond teacher using the rally crowd to make her point: "If you think this is crowded you should see my classroom."
A lot of humor mixed in with the strong emotions: "Still waiting for a fully funded classroom,” this skeleton riding in a wheelchair proclaims.
Amanda saw all kinds of signs down there, and many like this that really touched her - simply listing the names of all the students that teacher was there representing.
A lot of teachers-to-be have walked the picket lines at the Capitol asking the legislature to fully fund education: "I'm currently a Sooner please don't make me move to Texas.”
Finally, my favorite: "Sorry we're late our history books say the Capitol is in Guthrie, OK.”
Of course, it was! It wasn’t until 1910 when it moved to OKC. Nice sign!
