Kaiser Foundation director: 'Business as usual' isn't working

The Oklahoman reports that Ken Levit, executive director of the Tulsa-based George Kaiser Family Foundation, told an audience of 350 state and community leaders yesterday that the U.S. education system is in need of reform.
The nation is facing an education crisis, Levit said. The U.S. has doubled per-pupil spending during the past 37 years, but 15-year-olds in the United States still rank behind students from 22 other countries in science and 31 countries in math, Levit said. 

"We need to fund innovation first, not business as usual," Levit said.
