OSSBA Executive Director Reacts to Voucher Bill Decision

Statement from Shawn Hime, OSSBA executive director:

“I appreciate the Senate for not moving forward with a divisive bill that distracts from the most important issues facing Oklahoma’s nearly 700,000 public school students: a historic teacher shortage and severe budget cuts. I’m confident that a collective focus among legislative, business and education leaders and parents will help bring us closer to ensuring every child has a high-quality teacher in a classroom with the resources necessary to ensure a rich, full educational experience.”
