It is 'Back-to-School' for Most Oklahoma Kids

Smaller class sizes would allow teachers to really get to know their students

"Through the No Child Left Behind Act era and into the time of the Every Student Succeeds Act, schools have shared a growing pot of money from Title I, the largest elementary and secondary education program that funds support for low-achieving children especially in high-poverty schools", said Karen Meaney, a senior analyst in Simba Information's Education Group and primary author of that group's new report PreK-12 Budget & Policy Outlook, 2018-2019.

The CEA said it was expecting about 400 teachers at Monday's Capitol rally.

At least 500 educators are expected to demonstrate at the state Capitol in Denver on Monday to push for more financial support, the Colorado Education Association says, in what will be just the latest in a wave of teacher protests at USA state capitols this year.

"We are calling Monday, April 16th a day of action", said Kerrie Dallman, President of the Colorado Education Association.

This is the first day back to school for many Oklahoma students following the two-week walkout by Oklahoma teachers.

- Teacher pay: The CEA says Colorado educators' average pay has dropped by more than 17% when adjusting for inflation over the last 15 years.

CEA spokesman Mike Wetzel said Friday the district made the decision to close because it "didn't have enough substitutes to cover that many teachers being out".

The Economic Policy Institute, a progressive think tank, ranked Colorado 50th, ahead only of Arizona, in how teacher pay compares to that of other college-educated workers.

Nearly thirty Oklahoma schools have announced cancellation for Wednesday's classes and admitted that if they do not see a legislative change, the protests could continue through the week.

"I know there has been some frustration just from what I have heard - a lot of working parents". One school will be open for day care for fees of $30 per child, the district said.
