    Oklahoma teachers planning to strike

    Stop equating the OEA with all teachers. Less than half of the teachers in OK are members.

    Good for you. Wasn't the case at Putnam City and Union. I hadn't thought about the step scale in awhile, it's depressing seeing those numbers again.

    Yeah that pay scale technically exists, but is never actually paid out. I taught in OK from 2009-2014 and never once received a "step" increase. Some places may have been able to give them since, but I doubt that's true for the majority of districts.

    If true, pushing back from April 2nd to 23rd is a massive no-balls move. Nothing will change, and in August education in Oklahoma will be the same (or god forbid worse) shithole it is now.

    Neat idea (legitimately), but equally as unrealistic as mine.

    What I posted is probably unclear - the per pupil spending in 2016-17 was $7923.20, and the superintendent difference would only add $11.50 per student.

    Oklahoma teachers planning to strike

    In order: No data to back it up, but as a former OK teacher with several close friends in several districts that are, I'd be willing to bet that a lot of them would accept the current pay rate if the other financial support was there. Oh my favorite one! Why should someone with no training in...

    Oklahoma teachers planning to strike

    This isn't calling you out, just using the numbers you provided. This is unrealistic and doesn't account for county population or dollars per student attributed to superintendent pay, but let's pretend every district in every county was equal. The average pay per superintendent is just under...

    Sweet Jesus fuck YOU’RE a teacher?!??! That’s the scariest thing I’ve read on this board. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Whoop de shit. Schools and SROs everywhere train for this. As we're learning about Florida, the SROs presence alone was NOT helpful. Can't speak for every state, but from my experience as a high school teacher in Oklahoma and someone who visits schools in Utah frequently for work there is...

    What? Retconning the OT? I don't think you saw what you think you saw.

    NH lawmakers brutally kill 4th-graders' bill in front of them

    You probably think that teachers in Oklahoma are overpaid too.

    Update on my 6 hop amber ale: it's awesome. Nice and clear, right on the border of deep amber and red, fruity-ish hop aroma, balanced nose, malty finish. Best one I've made in awhile.

    Me and my lazy brewdog making an amber ale with 6 kinds of hops. Buttered with A half ounce of Amarillo, then a half ounce each of ahtanum, Simcoe, Nelson sauvin, centennial, cascade, and Amarillo in the last 5 minutes. The remaining hops from the 1 oz packages will be a dry hop. Wish I had a...

    Will be attempting my take on Prairie Bomb - since I can't get it now that I live in Utah - within the next couple weeks. I made a pretty good 7% version last winter, but overdid it on the coffee and chili aging aspect. Gonna try to get as close to 13% as I can for this one, and bump up the...

    Just moved to secondary and took a gravity reading. Was shooting for 8.5%, ended up with 7.8%, I'll take it. Now it'll age on some cocoa nibs and get a pinch of pumpkin pie spices in a week or so. Excited for this one.

    Yeah, I may have spoken too soon about calling mine an Imperial porter lol. Combined with my brew setups garbage efficiency at high gravities and getting less fermentables from the 6 pounds of pumpkin than I expected my OG was only 1.070. I used the US-04 dry yeast because I wasn't expecting...
