Diggers Make Their Voice Heard

A group of Wilburton educators, administrators, and staff participated in the Education Rally on the 30th.  Our legislators were informed about the struggles our children face in a climate of consistent budget reductions and the growing number of state mandated testing platforms.

Our local legislators were warm and welcoming and encouraged us to participate on a regular basis by contacting them and their colleagues to let them know that we should be putting Education FIRST in Oklahoma.

Unfortunately Oklahoma has been number 1 in funding cuts:  (http://newsok.com/report-oklahoma-again-no.-1-in-nation-in-student-spending-cuts/article/5356950) and number 48th in per student funding (http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/education/oklahoma-ranks-th-in-per-pupil-spending-as-education-week/article_7a40aca6-671e-511d-a2d7-185fc23fb92a.html)
