Oklahoma lawmakers wrestle with the price tag for meeting the state's water needs. The debate continues over whether or not to regulate homeschools in the state. With thousands of Oklahomans locked up, their children are often left with no place to go. And jail operators across the state find creative ways to cut the cost of housing inmates. All that and more, on ONR.

Homeschool Rules (10:18)

Featured in Top Stories

An estimated 20,000 students are homeschooled statewide each year. In Oklahoma, parents are not required to prove they are homeschooling or how well they are educating their children. Homeschool advocates want to keep it that way but that opens up questions about whether the state is fulfilling its obligation under the law to ensure all children are properly educated.

Emancipated Children (8:01)

Featured in Top Stories

As most Oklahoma children are settling back into the school year their biggest worries are who they'll sit with at lunch or if the other kids will like them. But for a growing number of students they're facing much bigger concerns such as where they'll sleep that night or if they'll have food to eat after school. The State Department of Education is reporting more than 15,000 students are considered homeless according to federal guidelines. And the trend does not seem to be slowing down.

Student Health (4:55)

Featured in Top Stories

As classrooms begin to fill up this semester, students are bringing with them a number of health issues that will impact their ability to learn. They range from lack of sleep or poor nutrition to thoughts of suicide and substance abuse. These are all problems that may be noticed for the first time inside the school house. Oklahoma mental health officials tell us substance abuse, teen suicide and early sexual activity are stubborn problems that the state has shown little, if any, ability to deal with over the last several years.

For a growing number of public school students, going back to class this year will mean turning on their computer at home. On-line education has grown so fast that total virtual enrollment isn't yet known. Preliminary data shows on-line learning has attracted students from 45 of the state's 77 counties.

Teacher Pay (6:04)

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma public school teachers are nearly the lowest paid in the nation, currently ranked 48th. Despite that, the state ranks 9th in the country for the total number of teachers who have reached nationally board certified status. Under state law, that distinction is supposed to come with a five thousand dollar bonus. However, that bonus is no longer funded because of a decision by the state board of education.
