    Not everyone is on board with ending a walkout, despite the Oklahoma Education Association calling for it to come to a close.

    On Thursday, the OEA called for the end of the walkout after nine days. As teachers, like Elaine Brown, left the Capitol, they told FOX 25 they were leaving feeling defeated and disgusted but looking forward to November.

    "I feel like they kind of took the coward way out," Brown said.

    Parents FOX 25 spoke to said they will continue the fight.

    "Legislators understand that this was a very symbolic effort of everyone coming together," A parent told FOX 25. "We are in solidarity to say "Fund our schools'."

    Several districts have announced they will be closed on Friday. Most of them say they will resume class on Monday.
