Senator calls for truth in advertising

As I never tire of repeating, Oklahoma's education officials are misleading parents and taxpayers about student performance in this state.

Today in The Oklahoman, state Senator Clark Jolley (R-Edmond), vice chairman of the Senate Education Committee, points to yet another study showing the same thing. The study "suggests our system leads children into a false belief they are prepared for college and/or the work force by inflating test scores," writes Sen. Jolley, himself a former public school teacher. "If you are a parent, you should have confidence that your children are performing at the level their scores suggest. If you are a taxpayer, you have the right to know how Oklahoma students truly compete nationally."
