Some Tulsans dissatisfied with their return on 'investment'
Krista Flasch of KJRH reports that a group of protesters rallied today against the $354 million dollar bond issue Tulsa Public Schools is trying to push through. One of the protesters was quoted as saying, "We've got eighth graders that have a second grade reading level. We just don't want to pay any more taxes on this." Silly taxpayer. Meanwhile, school superintendent Keith Ballard, apparently unfamiliar with this chart, assures us that more money "impacts test scores," though he didn't specify whether the impact was positive or negative.
