“Better Plan” Update

It’s been 4 months, 22 days since Oklahomans decided buying booze in the grocery store is important and funding teacher raises isn’t.

The Greater OKC Chamber killed the bill by pumping over $900,000 into a convoluted ad campaign that misled the public. They claimed there would be a “better plan” for funding teacher pay, which will soon be 51st in the nation.

Coincidentally, it’s the same amount of lobbying the Greater OKC Chamber has done on behalf of teachers.

Go figure.
