Former state treasurer points to Oklahoma's school performance woes

"Our business community is saying that the current education product doesn’t meet their needs," writes former state treasurer Scott Meacham, a Democrat.
According to performance on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, just 25 percent of Oklahoma’s eighth-graders are proficient in math and 29 percent are proficient in reading. Some 40 percent of our high school graduates take remedial classes once they are enrolled in college because they didn’t exit high school prepared for the challenges of higher education.
