In response to the Obama Administration disapproval of a one-year extension of Oklahoma’s Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) flexibility, Oklahoma officials have responded with anger and disgust. Democrat candidate for governor, Joe Dorman disagrees.
“The Obama Administration doesn’t like when Oklahomans buck big government regulations, and [Thursday] the Administration responded by penalizing our children by failing to grant the one-year extension of the ESEA flexibility,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe.
“Oklahomans want education reform that sets standards created and certified by Oklahoma’s institutions, community leaders, and parents. Instead of supporting these values, the Obama Administration has chosen to make it more expensive and difficult to achieve the state’s education goals that, once met, will exceed the requirements set by the U.S. Department of Education. As seen with ObamaCare taxes or the Endangered Species Act rulings, today’s decision continues the trend of this Administration punishing Oklahoma for making decisions that represent the goals and interests of its constituents.”
