The State of Art in Oklahoma

Research shows arts programming in schools helps close gaps in student achievement. It also helps level the playing field for children from affluent families and those whose parents are low-income. So, what is the role of arts in Oklahoma? We discuss that today, with our guests: Jennifer James McCollum, Executive Director of Oklahomans for the Arts; Kim Baker, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Arts Council; Julie Kirt, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition; and, Jean Hendrickson, Executive Director of Oklahoma A+ Schools.

Oklahoma News Report

In this week's ONR, Oklahoma's murder rate reached near-record highs in 2012, while Oklahoma's other major metro area, Tulsa, was at lower rate than usual. We look at what's causing the disparity in numbers, and what's being done to prevent violent deaths across the state. The Pinnacle Plan meant to restructure the Oklahoma Department of Human Services went into effect last July, but it still has a ways to go to be fully implemented. Multiple Sclerosis can strike anyone at anytime, but a cure remains elusive. While drugs are available to slow the disease's progression, the cost remains out of reach for some. Plus, the Supreme Court steps into one of Oklahoma's ongoing water wars, Organizational Day, and a look at a historic Tulsa building, on this ONR.

Diversity in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse states in the U.S.; not just one group, but a combination of many. American Indians, African Americans, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Latinos comprise one-fourth of the state's population. And that segment is getting larger - 47% of Oklahoma public school students are non-white. So today, we discuss diversity and Oklahoma's growing minorities, with our guests: Colonel Stan Evans, former Dean of Dtudents at the OU College of Law and former member of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission; Jana Lewis Harkins, advocate for African-American and women's rights; Ruben Aragon, President and CEO of the Latino Community Development Agency; and Sarah Adams-Cornell, Native American advocate and member of the Oklahoma City Choctaw Tribal Alliance.
