This is just wrong on so many levels. We look up to our teachers, they are held to a higher standard around other people's children! I pray for this man and I hope he finds his way out of all this. Blessings

If Oklahoma would pay the teachers enough then they wouldn't be turning to selling drugs. I am NOT NOT NOT condoning drug sales, but I am just stating that the teachers in Oklahoma don't get paid nearly enough, that's why the schools in Oklahoma are horrible. The teachers get paid peanuts to put up with rude, irresponsible kids who think they are too "cool" to bother learing stuff and the teachers don't get paid enough to actually care whether the kids do learn! PAY THE TEACHERS MORE!!!!
Teachers choose to be teachers! Selling drugs is not an excuse for low pay. If they did not want to put up with too cool kids, then they need to find another job. Most teachers do it for the love of teaching, not for the paycheck. Blessings

Your theology is dumb. I have been a teacher and coach in the state of Oklahoma for 15 years and have never had to sell drugs to make my payments in life. Drug dealing is drug dealing. Many hard working people make less than teachers and do not resort to selling drugs. It is people who make excuses for those who lack a morals that are destroying this great country. DO THE RIGHT THING AND NO BS EXCUSES!

So if he is a phys ed teacher then let him teach aerobics at a health club, be a personal trainer at clients homes or in a health club...there are alot of choices out there instead of selling pot. If you worked your bottom off to get through school and get your degree and then f it all up by selling dope, it just makes no sense. He had other legit avenues to make extra money. Now he is going to lose his teaching certificate and maybe do some jail time. (Not sure but possible).

If Oklahoma legalized pot it would cover all the cost of education.

They need the same attention for anyone who drinks their drug of choice - alcohol.

I beg to differ. Smaller class sizes and parents involved in their child's life/education would go far to appease teachers. It isn't always all about the job pay.

Brilliant! There are plenty of legal ways for teachers to earn a little extra income to pay for the extras they may otherwise have to do without. I've known them to tutor or give lessons, sell cosmetics and home decor, work summers as bank tellers or at camps, work part time for stores like walmart or jcpenney's, do lawn care, farm, and operate online businesses. Those are just some examples. I hope they throw the book at this jerk!

Especially if we allowed it in the casinos and where lottery tickets are sold since they were to pay for teachers and educations as well. Right Brad baby.

That could work. I will bet 20 on craps and hand me that big blunt. It wouldn't work back in the bingo hall days. I can't imagine 400 blue haired old ladies stoned out their mind trying to keep track of 40 bingo cards.

Do YOU have the extra cash to pay someone else to tutor your kids or buy extra cosmetics or home products? Have you looked for a job in Oklahoma in the recent months? I am not working right now due to complications with my pregnancy, but I know that there are no jobs to be had once I can go back to work. I do think that it should be legalized and taxed because it would bring in a large revenue for states and that would be able to help pay for some of the expensses that teachers are incurring like purchasing copy paper and things that they need for everyday lesson plans that are now not covered by the budgets because there is no extra money for things like that. Just like there is not enough money to let each kid have their own book, which is why the teachers need to make copies of the book, for the kids to use. But if YOU are able to employ a teacher to do your yard work, or tutor your child then consider yourself lucky that you have the extra money to do that each month, because most of the rest of us are not so lucky after bills and groceries.
Are you a even a teacher? Your angle isn't quite clear. One minute you sound like a teacher struggling to get by and the next minute you sound like a parent who can't afford to purchase something that their child's teacher is selling. I could answer your questions better if you explained.

OK folks here's the deal. I have known many people who have ruined their lives and family with legal alcohol but, other than legal trouble, no one has been harmed by marijuana. Legal alcohol has no medical benefits but pot has many medical uses.
Our judicial system is clogged up with simple marijuana possession cases and our prison systems are over-crowded. Drunk drivers are the greatest danger to all of us yet I have known many that have gone through the revolving judicial door to repeat offend over and over.
By legalizing marijuana, the courts and jails would get much needed relief and our law enforcement people would be able to devote more time working on real crime and the truly bad drugs. The teacher should not have sold marijuana but let us keep this in a proper prospective. A little common sense could go a long way here! Legal alcohol is by far the more destructive to our population yet marijuana is considered a "demon drug". Oklahoma, let's decriminalize marijuana and the people who use it or need it!

hey seenitbefore, if teachers get little pay, why did they decide to become a teacher if it was not enough money, they made that decision, they could have chosen another profession, people choose how much money they want to make, they know ahead of time how much teachers get paid, how bout they major in something else in college? he could have become a doctor, lawyer, cpa, business major, anything he wanted, he chose to sell drugs because he wanted to

What ever they have a start out of 30,000 now thats not bad considering that more then 65% in Oklahoma only make 23,000 a year! The worst thing about our job is that the kids get to be a pain in the but!
