CCOSA / OROS Respond to SQ 779 Results
Nov 09, 2016
The Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) and the Organization of Rural Oklahoma Schools (OROS) are disappointed that Oklahoma voters failed to pass State Question 779. However, the conversation surrounding the state's underinvestment in our children's education is far from over. We will continue the daily work of fighting to improve education in the state of Oklahoma.
Our children deserve better than four-day school weeks, overcrowded classrooms, program and coursework cuts, and a teacher shortage that has reached critical levels. In the absence of solutions, our children suffer.
Our organizations look forward to collaborating with the legislature and other state leaders, as well as education, business, and community stakeholders, to create a long-term education funding and teacher pay raise plan. Our children and teachers are worth it.
