Common Core and Budget Mistakes Make the Case for Transparency Reform

As the 2010 session came to a c…

Common Core Is Back: Hofmeister Accused Of Lying To Legislature

Rep. Cleveland takes aim at the state education leadership for deceit. News9 reports:

The final drafts of the new standards were to be completed by the OSDE in August of 2016 with copies presented to the Oklahoma legislature prior to the February start of that year’s legislative session.
