Oklahoma Board of Education votes whether to release school report cards
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Board of Education is holding a special meeting Wednesday to vote whether to release A-F school report cards.
The grading system has faced opposition in the past, and some claim the system is flawed.
Last year, a law changed the formula after school district administrators had concerns.
After the 2013 state report cards were released, more schools were failing with around 24% receiving D’s and F’s.
Researchers from the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University have called the program ‘largely imperfect’.
Now, the state board of education will decide if we will see the 2014 school year’s report cards.
The meeting will take place Wednesday at the Oklahoma state capitol.
