Obama’s education secretary: states are ‘lying’

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said yesterday that some states are "lying to children and families" about the quality of education they're providing.

Some prominent Oklahomans -- a state senator, the president of BOK Financial Corp., and the president of The State Chamber, among others -- are doubtless grateful for the air cover. This can only brighten the prospects for Senate Bill 1111, which will increase the transparency and accountability of student achievement data in Oklahoma.
