Dozens of people supporting improved classroom funding for public school teachers gathered at a coffee shop in Norman to hear from a pair of Oklahoma legislators about the upcoming teacher walkout.
[UNFILTERED] reporters and University of Oklahoma students Reagan Ledbetter and Sam Brown were there. They are both students at the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
The event was called "Coffee Chat with the Reps," and it featured Representatives Emily Virgin and Jacob Rosencrants.
Watch the event below, and take a second to like the OUCovers18 Unfiltered Facebook page. Much of the students' work will be featured in the [UNFILTERED] section of News9.com and the KWTV Facebook page, but the OU Facebook page will also have lots of coverage of this teacher walkout.
After the event, Ledbetter and Brown took a few minutes to recap the morning and look ahead to Monday's walkout.
