Teachers haven't gotten a raise in 10 years. Teachers are fleeing the state, including the Teacher of the Year, who quit his job in 2016 shortly after receiving his award, taking a better-paid teaching job in a neighboring state (the Dallas school system actively recruits Oklahoma teachers with Oklahoma City hiring booths).

Their health plan was replaced with a private system; more than $1000/month for a family of three -- one teaching aide was actually paying to work her job, spending $200/month more on health insurance than she was paid in salary. Teachers make ends meet with public housing, food stamps, and school food-bank drives. The highway patrol has been given orders not to completely fill their gas-tanks at the pump, to help with state cash-flow.
