Letter: Education determination

ENID, Okla. — Kudos to all parents and educators who finally found their courage and took on the governor, the state superintendent and the Legislature in defense of Oklahoma’s third-graders.

We had despaired at the abuse of Oklahoma’s children, but collective voices in action made a difference.  

I hope this determination will manifest itself in closer examination of the end-of-course exams for seniors.

Not only are those tests exercises in the pursuit of trivia, but also many questions/answers are just plain wrong.

A salute to all of you who gathered signatures, made presentations and walked the halls of the Capitol. See your efforts as only the beginning.
