Red States Green Jobs

Featured in Top Stories

Think about "going green" and you may envision recycling paper or driving a hybrid car. But in Oklahoma, it means much more than that. Training is available at little or no cost for people to green up their current occupation...or, get a new job in our state's fast-expanding green economy.

School Report Cards

Featured in Top Stories

By next fall, the process of assessing the best and the worst of Oklahoma public schools will change again. That's when schools begin receiving report cards. Schools will be graded on an A – through -- F scale based on a wide variety of performance criteria. The State Department of Education believes the report card model will make it easier for parents to understand how well schools are doing. But, several school administrators say such a grading system is a bad way to promote school improvement.

Low Performing Schools

Featured in Top Stories

The State Board of Education has formally approved the final list of the lowest performing public schools. The board's final decision reduced the number of schools from seven to six, giving an Oklahoma City charter school another chance to prove they are not among the worst schools in the state. However, one other school that was left on the list is expected to make a formal appeal to be removed.

The Pinnacle Plan outlines broad reforms for the Department of Human Services. The State Department of Education works through the process of determining which public schools are low performing and how to rank them. A rise in Oklahoma’s pollen levels is increasing the risk of severe attacks in asthma patients. The drive to "eat local" is bringing more people out to farmer's markets. All that, plus a look at the survivor tree, 17 years after the federal building bombing, next on ONR.

School Waiver

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma public education is undergoing major change. One of those changes: the state received a waiver from the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind law that allowed Oklahoma to implement its own plan to identify low performing schools and improve them. The process of identifying those schools is raising questions about how the state is deciding which schools need help.
