Compared to the rest of the country, Oklahoma consistently ranks at or near the bottom in education funding. Eric believes our children and our teachers deserve better than that. Having been raised by two teachers it did not take long for Eric to realize his calling. Prior to being elected, Eric taught high school history and government at a local alternative high school. Through addressing the needs of "at risk" students in our community, Eric Proctor has the experience of seeing students succeed when we care enough to invest in their futures. There is too much talk about supporting our teachers and students and not enough action. A vote for Eric Proctor is a vote for proven leadership in properly funding our schools, raising teacher salaries, and providing our children with the education they deserve.
