Oklahoma Education Association!

OEA works to promote, advance, and protect public education, the education profession, and the rights and interests of our members.

The Value of Membership

Salary and Benefits

Simply put, educators deserve professional pay for professional work — and the members of OEA are the premiere advocates fighting to ensure you’re paid what you’re worth. This also means stopping legislative cuts to your benefits such as health insurance and retirement.


From the local school board to the state legislature, elected officials are making decisions that impact your schools — join our union and be a part of the discussion. OEA members form the strongest voice advocating for educators and students in Oklahoma. We’re fighting against the standardized test regime, raising the need for fair evaluations, and standing in solidarity to secure fair wages for every worker in our schools.


Being an educator can be stressful — but you’re not alone. OEA members have a support system of thousands of educators and OEA staff who live and work in your district. Whether you’re a new teacher who needs advice on a difficult classroom or a food service worker that’s pushing back against student lunch debt – our union members are here to provide support, experience, and their voices to your needs.

Member Voices: ‘Why do I support the Oklahoma Education Association?”

I think it’s important to make a difference. And I think that the local makes a difference. Where many voices become one.”

It started off with just representation, in case something ever happened, but it ended up being a support system, people I can talk to, and, in all honesty, friends now.”

Centennial Elementary School

I wanted to be able to be part of the change that was happening. It was just something after going to the Capitol and seeing all the excitement, it was just contagious, so I wanted to bring it back to our local and start changes here that would help our kids.”
