Quote of the Day 2/9

“When a private school is given public dollars without the same state and federal reporting or testing standards as public schools, there is no way one can fairly evaluate how the funds are being used to serve the student. There is no measurement or accountability, which is required of public schools. Simply put, vouchers don’t promote equality or higher standards for Oklahoma children.”
