LWV plans "Focus on Education"

The League of Women Voters has planned a statewide "Focus on Education" on Tuesday, April 9, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. A live broadcast of a panel discussion will occur in seven locations across the state including: The Institute for Teaching and Learning Excellence on the OSU Campus in Stillwater; Tulsa Community College; Cameron University in Lawton; University Center at Southern Oklahoma in Ardmore; Pontotoc Tech Center in Ada, and K20 Center in Norman.

The live production will involve a panel at Metro Tech OK including: David Blatt, OK Policy Institute; Brad Williams, President, Student Services, OSU/ OKC; Sharon Rodine, Oklahoma Institute of Child Advocacy; Terry Graham, Burlington Public School Board Member; and Lavena Brown, Oklahoma City Public Schools Pre-K Parent.

Oklahoma education has had its funding cut in the last few years, whereby the education budget is 34% down from 38% in 2004. Per pupil spending is down as well. If Oklahoma is to compete economically, our education dollars must be spent wisely. Your participation in this live broadcast on April 9 can help draw attention to this important issue.

Questions for the panel may be submitted from all 8 sites, including Stillwater's at the ITLE Bldg on Monroe Street (next to the Child Development Lab) on the OSU Campus. Facilitators from our local League will be:
• Martha McMillian
• Cassie Reed
• Karen Melcher
• Elaine Courtright

We ask you to please start drafting questions to submit to the OKC live panel and be present at our Stillwater site at 6:30 Tuesday night.
