December 30th, 2011

With 2011 giving way to 2012, we decided to look back at some of the top stories from the last year on ONR. 2011 was a year that saw the state suffer the effects of blue-green algae growth in several lakes and widespread extreme drought. It was a year when thousands of Oklahomans went off to war, earthquakes shook the ground, and jobs and the economy remained a major concern. It was also a year when a new slate of statewide elected officials took office and the legislature passed some bills that had stalled - among them, a bill to regulate puppy mills.

As Boeing announces a move of jobs to Oklahoma, the full-court press is on to keep the American Airlines maintenance facility from leaving the state in a company restructuring. A legislative task force wants to eliminate tax exemptions to further reduce the state income tax. But will the change actually save people money on their tax bill? Out with the old, in with the new. Sort of. A trip along state highway 9 uncovers some of Oklahoma’s early history. And U.S. Senator Tom Coburn weighs in on a new federal controversy. Those stories and more, straight ahead on ONR.

Teacher Evaluations

Featured in Top Stories

Next fall public schools in Oklahoma will begin a year long pilot project using new methods to evaluate teacher effectiveness. The State Board of Education has adopted three methods. Districts choose which to use. The evaluations will help each district decide how much group and individualized professional development its instructors need to help both teachers and students succeed.

Kids and Tech

High tech gadgets are topping holiday wish lists. Most are loaded with games and apps designed to captivate their users. They are also powerful educational instruments. For decades teachers taught the "three r's" using books, papers, pencils and chalkboards. Those methods now share classrooms with high tech devices some fear are more toy than teaching tool, but that educators say are changing the way students learn.

NCLB Waiver

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma educators are waiting to see whether requirements of the No Child Left Behind law will be waived by the federal government. A waiver would allow Oklahoma to avoid the requirements of a law that has been widely criticized by educators since it was enacted. However, the waiver request itself is being criticized in part because of the power it would give state officials to take-over locally-controlled public schools.

Affirmative Action (10:00)

Featured in Top Stories

A year from now, America will be just days away from going to the polls to elect a president. In Oklahoma, among the candidates vying for public office there will be more state questions. One issue that will be on that ballot, state question 759, is already motivating people to get organized against it. In 2008 the issue of ending affirmative action was the subject of a petition drive that did not get on the ballot because of problems with the signatures that were gathered. But earlier this year, the state legislature brought the issue back to life in the form of Senate Joint Resolution 15 which is now State Question 759.
