Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan Comments on Teacher Pay

“Governor Henry is to be commended for his commitment to keeping the promise we made to Oklahoma teachers to raise their pay to the regional average.”

“Senate Democrats have always supported better pay for our teachers because we fundamentally understand greater opportunities for all Oklahomans begin with smart and bold investments in education.

“A state budget, just like a household budget, is a direct reflection of our priorities and what we value the most. Investments in education like Governor Henry proposed today send a strong message to the business community, to the hard-working people of our state and to the entire nation that we are committed to improving our public schools so Oklahoma children can compete in today’s growing global economy.”
