Teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma, and Kentucky have gone on strike in attempt to encourage legislation in the direction of salary increases, the country singer’s sisters joining the strike.
In support of her sisters, Underwood shared a photo of them at the strike, writing a powerful message supporting their cause.
”So proud of my sisters…Making a difference for the best reason…KIDS! Here’s hoping OK schools get the funding they need so students and teachers can come back to a great learning environment! Love you guys!” Underwood captioned her photo featuring her sisters at the strike.
Oklahoma has the third lowest teacher salaries in the country, the teachers not having gotten pay raises since 2008. Additionally, 20 percent of Oklahoma schools have four day week schedules due to budget restrictions as well as class sizes exceeding the legally allowed 20 students per classroom.
