If you thought the Oklahoma legislature had no plan for funding education, you’re wrong. They do have a plan. It’s called, cut their budgets till they bleed, then blame us when our methods of compensating make the state look bad. Hey, and guess what?! They’re going to give teachers a raise, too!
If you believe that, we have some ocean front property on the state capitol grounds to sell you…
I’m sorry you’re upset.
To all the first-year Legislators at the Capitol: you are not responsible for this month’s version of State Aid Mystery Theatre, which superintendents received today:
Based on available funds, the State Aid formula payment for the month of March will be paid at the accumulative amount of 70.96 percent instead of the scheduled 72 percent of the current adjusted allocation. Revenue collections for the March State Aid payment are approximately $18.9 million short of the funds needed to make the scheduled 72 percent payment.
