Teachers walkout fallout: Impeachment effort underway against OEA leaders

Some teachers are working to oust two high-ranking Oklahoma Education Association leaders over their strategic handling of the Oklahoma teacher walkout, which ended two weeks ago.

Teachers began to circulate a petition through social media Friday to initiate impeachment proceedings against OEA President Alicia Priest and Vice President Katherine Bishop. The post circulated a petition that needs the signatures of 15 percent of OEA delegates, according to the groupís bylaws. An OEA spokesman refused to provide a copy of the bylaws, saying it was not a public document, but a copy was provided to the Tulsa World by an OEA member.

Another OEA member said 15 percent means about 40 signatures. If the threshold is reached, it would trigger impeachment proceedings before the OEA Review Board, which is made up of retired members, according to a member.

The impeachment effort is underway while the OEA delegates assembly takes place Friday and Saturday in Norman.
