SQ 779 Intensified the Conversation About Education

The Oklahoma Education Association thanks the thousands of Oklahoma voters who cast their ballots today in favor of State Question 779. While we are disappointed by the outcome of the vote, the prominence of education issues this election cycle shows that Oklahomans uniformly agree we must do something to help our underfunded schools, understaffed classrooms and underpaid teachers. Today’s vote simply shows that increasing sales tax is not the preferred way to do it. Oklahoma public schools are in crisis. We now look to the legislature and our fellow Oklahomans to find a solution that is right for our state and our students.
