Good education news

Jonathan Small

Regrettably, bad news in Oklahoma’s public education system is all too easy to come by.

Bullying is rampant. Test scores are down again. Too many teachers are behaving badly (a former Oologah-Talala teacher has been charged with having sex with a student during this spring’s teacher walkout, and a Clinton teacher reportedly confessed to the same thing after the walkout).

But I’ve also seen some good news lately, and it’s important to highlight it.

Read the rest over on The Journal Record.
