JOLLEY HOPEFUL DESPITE VETO OF EDUCATIONAL
ACCOUNTABILITY REFORM ACT
After receiving bi-partisan support from both chambers,
Senate Bill 1111 by Senator Clark
Jolley was vetoed by the Governor late last night.
The “Educational Accountability Reform Act”
would have provided greater accountability and transparency in
public education if enacted into law.
Jolley says while he is disappointed with the veto,
he is encouraged by the Governor’s call for the parties
to meet and work together to correct problems currently faced
in Oklahoma’s education system.
“In order for Oklahoma to provide positive
developments for our schools, and most importantly our students,
our system is in need of increased accountability and transparency
of educational data and testing assessments,” said Jolley.
“Governor Henry can be very instrumental in mediating the
concerns raised by those of us who seek much needed reform and
those who are defending the status quo. We both realize the necessity
for meaningful reform to be passed this session and I look forward
to visiting with him and others to get the reforms our schoolchildren
