The Senate Education Committee approved an amended version of SJR 75, which approves the standards immediately and instructions the State Department of Education to provide exemplars.
Additionally, the resolution has been amended to remove the requirement for legislative approval as part of the standards process.
Edmond parent Angela Little reported that Sen. Clark Jolley, R-Edmond, introduced the amendment to approve the standards immediately.
“Senator Clark Jolley saved the day for us today regarding SJR 75. Please email him and say THANKS! He may not be on our side consistently, but let’s show him why it’s great to be pro-public education,” Little stated in the public education Facebook group Oklahoma Parents and Educators for Public Education (OPE4PE)
