School Safety Commission

Less than a week after the deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, legislative leaders formed the non-partisan Oklahoma Commission on School Security. The commission moved quickly to develop findings and recommendations for Oklahoma schools. 22 people served on that commission and three of them join us: Eleanor Goetzinger, Behavior Specialist for Oklahoma City Public Schools; Roger Webb, Headmaster of Oklahoma Christian School and former President of the University of Central Oklahoma; and, Kim Carter, director of the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security.

On this episode of the ONR, we look at the sequester, and it's potential impact on Oklahoma's military bases and personnel. For military veterans returning home with head injuries, cures have remained elusive. But advances in medical technology are giving veterans a chance to move forward with their lives. Last year, lawmakers worked to pass 'smart on crime' initiatives, but a year later finds those initiatives unfounded and and its future uncertain. Plus, screenings for infants, colon health, and Okie astronauts on this ONR.

STEM Education

Featured in Top Stories

Employers looking for qualified workers in the coming years may not be looking in Oklahoma. Low math and science scores don't bode well for the Sooner state's employment prospects as more jobs shift to fields requiring strong backgrounds in those topics. Work is being done to increase math and science learning, but there's more to be done.

On this ONR, worker's comp reform has become a key part of republican lawmaker's agenda this session, which could lead to major changes for Oklahoma workers. Also on legislators' agenda: curbing the high number of Oklahomans driving without insurance. Good childcare is a conundrum for families across the state, but some parents find themselves in a gap--earning too much to receive assistance, and too little to afford childcare on their own. It's a problem hitting not just families, but childcare centers as well. And an agency out to clean up the state's defunct drilling sites. Plus, towns get 'Entrepreneur Ready,' stitching together love for veterans, and local poets break down the spirit behind the pen--or, the laptop, on this ONR.
