Spring break has been extended for some kids in Oklahoma. Many schools in the area will remain closed for a second day running after a teacher walkout hit services across the state. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin signed legislation last week granting teachers pay raises of 15 to 18 percent but many teachers, who haven't received a pay rise for a decade, have said that isn’t good enough and walked out. “If I didn’t have a second job, I’d be on food stamps,” Rae Lovelace—a single mom and third-grade teacher at Leedey Public Schools who works up to 40 hours a week at a second job teaching online courses—told the Associated Press. Oklahoma’s three largest school districts, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Edmond, will remain closed Tuesday to support the walkout.
