100 female attorneys headed to Capitol to support teacher walkout
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
One hundred female attorneys are expected to meet in Oklahoma City Monday to accompany teachers during the walkout.
On day one of the teacher walkout, Suzanne Phillips was optimistic.
“I was hopeful,” said Phillips.
On day two…
And on day four…
“I’m just going to go ahead and say that I’m going to continue to be hopeful that they can resolve this,” said Phillips.
Monday is day six of the teacher walkout.
Phillips, along with a 100 female attorneys, will be heading to the Capitol. Their goal is to do what lawyers do best – mediate.
“We can direct it back to – we are here because of the teachers, because of the students, that’s what’s important,” Phillips said.
Her son goes to Jenks Public Schools. He’s been out of school for a week, but Phillips comes from a long line of teachers. She said she knows what’s at stake.
“This isn’t a vacation, this is them fighting for their kids,” said Phillips.
She’s a mother, attorney and still optimistic, but said it’s time to get the job done.
“I heard a quote once was something along the lines of, 'If you need something done, give it to a busy mom and she’ll get it done,'" said Phillips.
