2016 Oklahoma "Teacher Caucus" Highlights, Parties, Ideals and Education Goals

Editor’s Note:  OKGrassroots will be releasing a feature series on Education Policy and the recent Election Cycle in Oklahoma.   We will take time to explore ideological differences and how those are playing out in – not only the political realm – but the public square as well as we publish information we have collected on the ‘Teacher Caucus’.  Not everyone in politics tells the truth.  Not all sources are reliable.  Do your own homework.  Follow the money.  OKGrassroots hopes these articles will help people to connect the dots and make informed choices at the ballot box.  Decisions are still being made in run-offs around the state./sc

Charlie Meadows' 2016 primary picks

Charlie’s Picks

by Charlie Meadows (former president of OCPAC)

It has become a tradition for me to publish my political tip sheet before important elections.  These are my opinions of who I believe ought to win, not necessarily who I believe will win.  This is a very important election cycle as we have the largest number of open seats since 2004, the first year term limits were fully implemented.
