Our school system is almost bankrupt. We are waiting to see who is losing their jobs this week and next.

Oklahoma is now number 50 in teachers pay and #49 in money spent on schools.

The headlines this morning announced a huge 600 million dollar increase in school spending.... now for the REST of the story.

The 600 million dollars will be added 30 million per year for 20 YEARS, and THIS ONLY if the state revenues increase 1% or more each year.

This is on the back of 200 million in cuts and no increase since 2008.

At this rate the original 200 million in cuts won't be made up until almost 7 years from now.

This is not counting what they haven't spent for the last 5 years.


The legislature is laughing at all of the little people while their children attend private or home schools.

I really don't care anymore. Getting any more money from these jerks is about as likely as Janet Barresi's lie of a raise for teachers in a vain attempt to get re-elected.
