According to a new statewide survey of 502 likely Oklahoma voters commissioned by OCPA and conducted by Cor Strategies (margin of error: plus/minus 4.37 percent), Oklahomans are split on the question of whether public schools are accountable. By a narrow margin, a plurality believes that public schools lack accountability.
Of interest is the partisan divide. Republicans believe (59 percent to 26 percent) that public education lacks accountability, while Democrats believe (50 percent to 29 percent) that public education is accountable. Independents are split (40 percent to 40 percent).
