2.Set measurable goals.
3.Hold ourselves responsible for delivering results

Followed all of #okleg house judiciary this morning, and we're capping it off with #SB1140, a bill that would allow agencies to discriminate against who they placed children with. #okleg #oklaed #OKwalk4kids
We're in the middle of the funding crisis. DHS is severely underfunded. And this is what your #okleg is spending time on. #oklaed #oklaedwalkout #OKwalk4kids #SB1140
A question from @EmilyVirginOK about how this complies with federal law is met with silence, then some fumbling from Dunlap. He cites Obergefell as an example of how this codefied discrimination is legal 🤷‍♀️🤦 #okleg #oklaed #oklaedwalkout #OKwalk4kids #SB1140

1. Wed at the Capitol was not only an unmitigated success, but it proves that this walk out is not a flash in the pan. What we’ve seen since Monday is GROWTH in this movement. But we have just begun. #oklahomateacherswalkout #oklahomateacherwalkout #oklaed #oklaedwalkout
2. It is equally important that we have a similar presence on Thursday and Friday. The House has passed new revenue tonight (Wednesday) #oklahomateacherswalkout #oklahomateacherwalkout #oklaed #oklaedwalkout #okwalk4kids
3. but we know that is only the first hurdle and that the House and Senate are not of a like mind on certain revenue measures. We need to be there to make sure new revenue makes its way through Gov. Fallin’s desk. #oklahomateacherswalkout #oklahomateacherwalkout #oklaed

I’ve seen myself or heard firsthand accounts of some really offensive/ridiculous things these lawmakers have said on air or to their constituents re: the #OKwalk4kids. We should keep a thread the “best” so we don’t forget in November. Use #OkLegFAIL if you share one. #OklaEd
Rep. Bobby Cleveland told @NEWS9 that teachers were paid to teach and needed to get back to the classroom the morning the #OKwalk4kids started. #OkLegFAIL
Last week, Mary Fallin said she hoped the teachers would come to the Capitol on Monday and say “thank you,” then head back to the classroom. #OkLegFAIL #OKwalk4kids
