Beginning April 2nd, many Oklahoma educators and state employees are planning to close schools and walk out unless lawmakers pass a plan to raise substantial revenues. The Oklahoma Education Association has released an outline of what will be needed to prevent or end the walkout. Their plan includes a $10,000 teacher pay raise over three years, a state employee pay raise, and funds to save health care services and undo some of the cuts to education funding and other critical public services. It would cost $812 million in the first year and $1.4 billion by FY 2021.

The plan is ambitious, but Oklahoma lawmakers have many good options to raise the needed revenues. Now you can see what decisions YOU would make.
