What failing schools really cost Oklahoma
"The most important question is not whether Oklahoma taxpayers can afford to go on spending $10,483 per graduate every year, although that question matters," Greg Forster writes for OCPA. "The most important question is whether Oklahoma can afford to go on failing 10,529 students in every high school class, year after year. Schools, like students, need to learn to see a tough task through until it’s complete. And if they tell us they’re having too much trouble learning, reforms like school choice could help them get up to speed."
