Oklahoma Governor Blasts School Districts for Firing Maskless Teachers

It now appears that local school districts have more power than governors.

We saw this in Florida recently when a school disobeyed Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order on masks and suspended a young girl three dozen times, more than likely requiring her to repeat the grade because she did not want to wear a mask.

Something similar is happening in Oklahoma, only this time it is against teachers who are going maskless.

Not Following State Law

Reports surfaced this weekend of mass firings of teachers in Oklahoma.

What did they do wrong?

Well, they did not want to wear a mask at school, so they lost their job.

The problem is that it is not supposed to be permitted under Oklahoma law.

Governor Kevin Stitt, a Republican, was livid the schools went to such drastic measures amid a teaching shortage.

In all, six teachers were terminated.

Governor Stitt stated, “Oklahoma City public school district had the audacity to fire six talented teachers.

“They were fired because they wouldn’t follow an illegal mask mandate issued by their superintendent. This is preposterous, especially in a time when talented teachers are needed more than ever,”

“Let me be clear: This is about a school district not following state law. This isn’t a debate about masks.

“These teachers even said they’d be willing to come back to class and wear a mask. But the superintendent Sean McDaniel wanted to fire them to make a point.”

Stitt signed legislation back in May that prohibited such mandates from being put in place.

So my question to him is the same question I put to DeSantis regarding the little girl getting suspended.

All this tough talk is great, but these school districts broke the law, so how do you plan on holding them accountable?

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
