Quote of the Day 6/22/2016

“It is clear that we cannot continue to achieve excellence in the future without state financing playing a greater role. The state’s share of the cost of educating students at OU has fallen from 32 percent from 20 years ago to 12 percent today. The people of Oklahoma must decide if they are willing to invest in the education of the next generation. Education, not ignorance, is the pathway to a better future.”
