Oklahoma youth plan march and rally on the Capitol Complex March 31, 2014

Statewide, youth and educators have planned to march for March 31, 2014 on the Oklahoma State Capitol, which continues to be top news in Oklahoma City and across the state.

With education standards and issues of reduced funding before them, youth across Oklahoma are to be released from attending school that day.

As of today, as many as 300 districts statewide have indicated the plan to release students and staff from education obligations, and that buses are being chartered to transport students and educators to the Oklahoma State Capitol, which is at 23rd and North Lincoln. This is just slightly North of downtown Oklahoma City.

Many believe that Oklahoma education has fallen by the wayside in the eyes of the Legislators, that Legislators make decisions off in their own little world and ignore the students and educators in this state. So the students and educators intend to march on the Capitol Complex and participate in a rally at the Capitol to remind the elected who their youngest constituents are and that they expect from any legislation concerning them.

At least 2 State Legislators have publicly complained about the plan, with cries that it is somehow unethical or irresponsible.

As with Moral Monday in North Carolina, or Stand With Texas Women, it appears Oklahoma's Students and Oklahoma Educators intend a presence and opinion that won't be denied. March 31, the numbers and message will make it clear just what they want.

Rock the Vote and 16andVote are powerful movements along the lines of MTV that are pressing ahead the youth agenda, for better education, better futures and safer futures.

The planned March 31, 2014 March on the Capitol and Rally are free and open to the public.
