Oklahoma educators and lawmakers disagree over banning social study testing

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma educators are expressing their concerns about the proposed state legislation that would erase Oklahoma’s ability to measure student knowledge of social studies, geography and a significant portion of U.S. History.

According to reports, Senate Bill 1654 seeks to eliminate state assessments on social studies in grades five and eight, as well as geography in grade seven.

This U.S. history end-of-instruction exam would remain in place in high school.  However, that assessment only covers standards that encompass history following the Civil War.

‘That is disappointing,’ State leaders split over bill that bans cities from setting their own minimum wage

OKLAHOMA CITY – As national leaders fight over whether the government should raise the minimum wage, state leaders are taking matters into their own hands to keep all towns in Oklahoma on the same page.

According to the Tulsa World, Gov. Mary Fallin recently signed a measure that bars cities and towns from increasing the minimum wage above the state rate.

Currently, the state’s minimum wage is set at $7.25 an hour.

Fallin said, “Mandating a minimum wage increase at the local level would drive businesses to other communities and states, and would raise prices for consumers.”

Minimum wage has become a national topic of debate.
