State Chamber CEO: ‘Students deserve honest appraisal’

"The greatest disservice to graduates of Oklahoma's education system is to receive their first failing grade after graduation -- when they attempt to apply their skills in the job market," writes Dick Rush, president and CEO of The State Chamber. "They soon learn how competitive that environment is."

Mr. Rush points to a new study which "shows our children are being misled with inflated test scores into thinking they are prepared for college and the work force."
