OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Oklahoma City Public Schools announced that on Monday night it will house up to 400 Oklahoma educators who live more than 60 miles from the Capitol.
Educators across the state shut down schools beginning April 2 to protest for better pay and education funding.
A registration page was set up on the school's website. Those looking for a place to stay at no cost while rallying in OKC can do so at the Capitol Hill High School Fieldhouse while space is available.
"We know housing & travel costs can be a barrier for our fellow educators from afar, and OKCPS wants to ensure that all Oklahoma teachers get the opportunity to have their voices heard at the Capitol," the post read.
