Quote of the Day | May 14, 2018

“While we celebrate the many great achievements in our public schools, we are ever mindful of the crisis that continues to face public education in Oklahoma. While our teachers have received much-deserved raises, we still suffer from an unprecedented shortage of certified teachers, shortened school weeks, larger class sizes, and outdated text books and learning resources. I am hopeful about the level of civic engagement recently at our Capitol and the number of people running for office who are seeking long-term funding solutions for our public schools.”
