  • Advocate: Show Oklahoma teachers they matter by listening to them

    BY AMBER ENGLAND | Published: Wed, May 6, 2015

    This is teacher appreciation week, and in Oklahoma, we have our work cut out for us to demonstrate we believe teachers matter. The teacher I admire most is my mother. As a single mom, she kept a back-breaking schedule to earn her bachelor's degree in education. Once in the classroom, that work ethic radiated as dedication to her students. Eventually her career took her to Webster Middle School in Oklahoma City. The switch from a small, rural setting to a large urban district only galvanized her determination, because she knew her positive impact was often life-changing. She came home every week exhausted and her voice nearly gone. Quite literally, she poured everything she had into her students.

  • Cal Thomas: Unruly Brittania

    By Cal Thomas | Published: Wed, May 6, 2015

    LONDON — They called it “Question Time,” borrowing the term from the prime minister's weekly appearance in the House of Commons, but this was surprisingly and refreshingly different. Last week, the three main candidates for prime minister — David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg — one by one appeared before an audience of voters at the Leeds Town Hall where for a half-hour voters asked them informed, pointed and detailed questions. The host, the BBC's David Dimbleby, called for questions and occasionally followed up, but mostly voters drove the program. Two of the candidates were called liars right to their faces.

  • Oklahoma lawmakers have a second chance at a good bill

    The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: Wed, May 6, 2015

    IN the Legislature, no idea is truly dead until adjournment. In the case of Sen. David Holt's efforts to increase charter school opportunities, that's a good thing. Holt, R-Oklahoma City, authored legislation this year to add the city governments of Oklahoma City and Tulsa to the list of entities that can sponsor charter schools. That bill easily passed the Senate, with bipartisan support, but didn't get a hearing in the House of Representatives. Now Holt has revived that idea as an amendment added to House Bill 1696, a measure allowing charter schools in rural communities. The amended bill easily passed the Senate 38-6. It now awaits a House vote.

  • Michael Gerson: The intricate knot of urban poverty

    By Michael Gerson | Published: Wed, May 6, 2015

    WASHINGTON — Police and prisons are the successful answer to a rather narrow question: Can overwhelming force and routine incarceration bring temporary order to impoverished and isolated urban communities? Baltimore in the early 2000s answers in the affirmative. By 2005, a city of about 600,000 people recorded more than 100,000 arrests. Violent crime declined (for this and other reasons). In the process, however, the local government undertook a comprehensive level of police-supervision. Was it worth it? Public order — the security of life and property — is the first commitment of government.

    Hands are tied Forty years ago last week, the last helicopter left Saigon. When I think of the time, sacrifice and blood spilled, it makes me sick to my stomach. I spent two tours there and was led to believe that we and the South Vietnamese army were winning. Early on I could see that we servicemen had our hands tied due to rules of engagement and no-fire zones. Our commanders were enforcing these stupid rules, and we (as good soldiers) were obligated to follow them. Years after I left, I would often think, “Maybe next time they'll let us win.” Was I wrong! Looking at recent wars, I can see the rules are still in place. Soldiers shouldn't go to war worrying about being court-martialed for doing
