    Schools in Ok

    I just read that many schools in Oklahoma have been forced to reduce their schedule to only four days a week due to serious lack of funding. I think that is so disgraceful. Education should be a priority.

    Oklahoma schools have been terrible for years.

    Maybe now something will be done.

    Yes, but that policy is only the result of teacher unions that have no legal status in Oklahoma.

    Whenever the federal government cuts taxes, federal funding to the states for public programs is reduced as a consequence. Many states have increased their own taxes in response, in order to maintain their standard of service in such programs as public schools and infrastructure maintenance. Oklahoma is not one of those states.
