THE OPPOSITE OF EDUCATION IS MANIPULATION
Teachers continue to advocate for fair funding for education and educator pay.
Oklahoma lawmakers made plans to vote Friday on bills that could earmark more money for education. But it’s not clear if the measures will satisfy complaints by the state’s teachers, which have led to walkouts and widespread protests this week.

“In my life long study of human beings, I have found that no matter how hard they try, they have found no way yet to prevent the arrival of Monday morning. And they do try, of course, but Monday always comes…” Jeff Lindsay http://www.yanglish.com/tag/monday-quote/ Monday Quote
Even as hard as I try…
I try so hard, and it is still not working. I wear the same clothes as the others. I say the same words at the same times: good morning, hi, how are you, I’m fine, good night, please, thank you, you’re welcome, no thank you, not right now. I obey the traffic laws; I obey the rules. I have ordinary furniture in my apartment, and I play my unusual music very softly or use headphones. But it is not enough. Even as hard as I try, the real people still want me to change, to be like them.
