Oklahoma

I love Oklahoma. It is where I really learned how a bill becomes law as we passed legislation to increase options for potential teachers. I worked with some amazing legislators who really cared about increasing student performance here. So it is great to be back wandering the halls talking to those same legislators about our National Math and Science programs that are launching here in Oklahoma schools. In the muck of politics it is easy to think that there aren't really smart people who do care about their state. But I was always pleasantly surprised here and look forward to once again working with people like Senator Clark Jolley on helping more Oklahoma students succeed. It is good to be back.
