Oklahoma schools are awash in money

"Relatively few citizens are aware of the amount of money already going to Oklahoma's public schools," The Oklahoman correctly notes.
In the 2013 budget year, the total amount of funding for Oklahoma schools — including all state, local and federal dollars — was $8.2 billion, according to figures from the state Office of Management and Enterprise Services. That’s $1 billion more than in 2008, yet critics continue to complain that schools are "financially starved."
