Student Health (4:55)

Featured in Top Stories

As classrooms begin to fill up this semester, students are bringing with them a number of health issues that will impact their ability to learn. They range from lack of sleep or poor nutrition to thoughts of suicide and substance abuse. These are all problems that may be noticed for the first time inside the school house. Oklahoma mental health officials tell us substance abuse, teen suicide and early sexual activity are stubborn problems that the state has shown little, if any, ability to deal with over the last several years.

Teacher Pay (6:04)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma public school teachers are nearly the lowest paid in the nation, currently ranked 48th. Despite that, the state ranks 9th in the country for the total number of teachers who have reached nationally board certified status. Under state law, that distinction is supposed to come with a five thousand dollar bonus. However, that bonus is no longer funded because of a decision by the state board of education.
