I attended the press conference yesterday where Gov. Mary Fallin, Supt. Janet Barresi, Secretary of Education Phyllis Hudecki, and Republican legislative leaders locked arms with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to promote aggressive education reforms. When a reporter asked Gov. Bush which states were leading the way with bold, transformational reforms, he pointed to Oklahoma and Indiana.
Right on cue, Indiana took a big step forward yesterday. Here's hoping Oklahoma holds up its end of the bargain, most notably with SB 969 by state Sen. Dan Newberry.
