Oklahoma News Report


In this week's ONR, Oklahoma's prisons are at capacity, and the Department of Corrections is seeking more funds to handle the nearly 900 new prisoners added to the system in the past year. A study finds that the new A-F school grading system implemented by the Oklahoma State Board of Education hasn't earned a passing grade. Our reporters look at a disease that, in the very least, robs the afflicted of sleep and can lead to a bevy of health problems, even death. Plus, school choice week, women in combat, capitol repairs and presidential inaugurations on this episode of the ONR.

The Future of the Middle Class

We often hear from lawmakers, academics, pundits and policy experts on this program, discussing the news, identifying problems and proposing solutions. By design, they talk a lot about the issues concerning regular citizens, the middle class, and how politics and policies affect them. Today, for the first time on Oklahoma Forum, we're going to turn the tables, do something different, and listen to what some of those Oklahomans think about our state, what concerns them, and what they hope for the future. Call it a mini-town hall meeting, with our guests: Greg Hallman, Jr., a Spanish teacher at Santa Fe South Middle School, a charter school in Oklahoma City. Ashlie Stover, an undergraduate dance student from the University of Central Oklahoma. DePorres "Dee" Hopkins, owner of Hopkins Haircare and Enterprises in Oklahoma City. and, Brenna Reaves, a registered nurse of labor and delivery at Integris Southwest Medical Center.
