OKLAHOMA CITY —
Not all teachers supported the message of Monday’s rally, he said, adding that he spoke to constituents who “felt it was a waste of time and resources.”
Turner said he supports “appropriate use” of taxpayer money when funding schools.
“We need to discuss some really ugly words such as administration consolidation,” he said, adding that it’s also time to look at the school funding formula to ensure it’s equitable.
Turner said he did not attend the rally.
Some legislators did, however. Democrats had pledged they would be at the rally to show support for educators.
They included state Senate Minority Leader Sean Burrage, D-Claremore. Burrage pitched a tent outside the Capitol on Sunday, just so he could be among the first to greet educators Monday morning.
