Pruitt to lawbreakers: The fun's over, kids

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt

Attorney General Scott Pruitt has threatened legal action against the school districts that are openly flouting Oklahoma's special-needs scholarship law. Cathy Burden, Kirby Lehman, and Jarod Mendenhall are now on notice that "Willful neglect or disobedience to performing duties established by Law exposes you and members of your Board of Education to legal liabilities, both official and personal."

Please be advised that unless you notify me by no later than Monday, January 24, 2011, that you will discontinue your present course, and promptly execute the duties your School District set forth in the Act and promptly give scholarships for the period for which they were requested, I will take such legal action available to me as Attorney General of Oklahoma as appropriate to enforce the requirements of Law.
