Poteau, Oklahoma - Oklahoma teachers are seeking a pay raise and better funded schools. If they don’t get what they are asking for, teachers statewide will walk out on April 2.

The Southeast Oklahoma Teacher Walkout, held a very informative meeting on Tuesday evening at the Donald W Reynolds Center in Poteau, where our teachers throughout the county could voice concerns and get some questions answered.

State Employees are also joining on for better pay as well.
