“Oklahoma teachers plan to walk off the job on Monday and close schools statewide, demanding pay rises for some of the lowest-paid educators in the country and more funds for a school system reeling from a decade of budget cuts.

The strike comes after similar action about a month ago in West Virginia and as teachers in states including Arizona and Kentucky consider walkouts. Teachers say years of budget austerity in many states have led to the stagnation of already poor salaries.

“We’re walking because our students deserve more,” the Oklahoma Education Association, the state’s largest union for educators with about 40,000 members, said over the weekend.

Oklahoma’s Republican-controlled legislature last week approved the state’s first major tax increase in a quarter century to help fund pay raises for teachers, hoping to avert a strike with a $450 million revenue package.”
