Superintendents speak on A-F school grading concerns
OKLAHOMA CITY — The State Board of Education voted Monday to postpone the release of school report cards.
Last Thursday dozens of superintendents from across Oklahoma spoke out saying they were not happy about the grades.
In fact, 66 superintendents said the way the grades are calculated is deeply flawed.
The new grading system was adopted by the State Legislature last year; those grades were supposed to be officially released Monday afternoon.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Janet Barresi stopped by to explain the system and why they postponed the release.
Dr. David Goin, Superintendent of Edmond Public Schools, also came to the studio to discuss his concerns about the A-F grading scale.
