|Rep. Cleveland takes aim at the state education leadership for deceit.|
Some frustrated lawmakers said they feel duped by state Education Superintendent Joy Hofmeister.
Rep. Bob Cleveland says that Hofmeister told his caucus she backed House changes then went back and told the Senate she preferred their changes.
“She left our [chamber], goes over to the Senate and tells a whole different story,”said Cleveland, R-Slaughterville.“She did not tell the truth.”
And the ‘new’ recommendations, Cleveland claims “even the people on that board say it’s Common Core. It’s Common Core coming through the back door. And Joy Hofmeister is behind it.”
A spokesperson for Hofmeister says the superintendent did not mislead lawmakers, and the Superintendent is confident with the recommendations and they will be put into place as is.
As for the Oklahoma legislature, they end up looking inept and unable to hold the Education department accountable to he voters of Oklahoma. With filings for legislative offices just a couple weeks away, some frustrated parents may be scrambling to find more capable representation at the capitol.
