Schools have faced massive cuts in funding in the last 6 years. Oklahoma teachers are ranked 49th nationwide in pay. Multiple counties are forced to have a four day school week. Oklahoma teachers are leaving at an alarming rate.
Tax cut gifts to big oil by the controlling political party at the capitol are $216 million dollars, funding cuts to schools - $214 million dollars. These cuts have to be reversed.
As your next senator, I will focus all of my energy on finding ways to restore funding to education. Any politician wasting time on any other project, needs to be removed from office.
