In this episode of the ONR, education officials voice concerns after a new report shows that Oklahoma leads the nation in education spending cuts. Staying in the classroom, the state’s lone Mandarin Chinese immersion program is proving to be a great success helping students not only learn a new language, but connect with a new culture. After years of studies and meetings, a look into the rumored passenger rail service between Oklahoma City and Tulsa shows the project is still not on track. The state’s housing marking is enjoying a boost, thanks in part to another key industry. Plus, the week in business, gold mining, and a PBS travel aficionado, on this ONR.
