Education Controversy (9:58)

Featured in Top Stories

As a new school year begins, a flurry of reforms and state funding cuts have created a new educational landscape in Oklahoma. The changes are being met with mixed emotions and increasing tension. Oklahoma’s new state superintendent of public instruction Janet Barresi has promised a makeover of pre-k through twelve education. And, from her first meeting with the state board of education, she has faced controversy. The latest involves the board’s decision to strip nearly 34-million dollars in funding from teacher and support personnel health benefits. The budget cuts and new laws have stirred deep concerns within Oklahoma’s education community.
