Statement from Senate Democratic Caucus Chairman Tom Ivester on
State Department of Education testing debacle

“For the second year in a row, mandatory testing for thousands of Oklahoma students has come to a complete halt because of ‘computer glitches.’ You’d think after going through this last year, the Superintendent would have made certain we didn’t see a repeat. To have this happen two years in a row is inexcusable.

“This is a failure of leadership. Oklahoma students, teachers and schools are under a lot of pressure with these high stakes tests. Once again, those in charge have failed them.” --Sen. Tom Ivester, D-Sayre
