Every public school in this state is filled with hard-working, dedicated employees who want to make a difference in the lives of Oklahoma children. Not all of those employees are teachers, principals or superintendents. Throughout Oklahoma, we have about 40,000 support personnel. These include teachers’ aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and custodians. They can be some of the most physically demanding jobs in a school, and are the lowest paying.

Like teachers, most of these workers have gone years without any kind of cost of living increase. But right now, instead of looking at improving their working conditions, there is a bill moving through the Legislature that would actually take away rights from these employees.
