CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - An Oklahoma teacher's photo on Facebook portraying the need for education funding has gone viral with over 75,000 shares on social media.
Laurissa Kovacs, a fourth-year teacher, posted the photo on Facebook and explained her reasoning for walking out for higher pay.
Kovacs details how she has had to cut back on projects and lessons because there is not enough room or equipment for students. She has had to bring in chairs from home so that all the students have a seat to sit in.
"These kids deserve so much better than this," Kovacs wrote on Facebook. "They deserve classes that are small enough that the teachers can actually spend some time with each student."
The post has received so much attention, Kovacs created an Amazon registry because so many people have asked if they can donate supplies for the schoolroom.
Many schools will remain closed for a second day in Oklahoma Tuesday as the rallies continue.
