Oklahoma House Bill Targets "Underperforming" Schools
The overwhelmingly Republican House of Representatives of Oklahoma is showing their level of education and lack thereof. They are considering a bill to "take over" underperforming schools. Originally, the bill called for firing the principal and at least half the staff, closing the school or re-opening it as a charter school. Fortunately, that has been removed but the state will still step in. The underperforming legislators have cut funding for education so much that soon all schools in Oklahoma will be considered underperforming.
