REACTIONS

How officials reacted

“This proposed system misses the mark. I'm a college graduate, I'm a legislator and, most importantly, a parent. But when I look at the document I'm at a loss for words. This is disappointing, confusing and contradictory. ... This plan was not the intent of the Legislature.”


Rep. Mike Shelton, D-Oklahoma City

“My colleagues don't really feel like we were involved in this process. This morning, this is probably the first time we've ever seen our group together to have a discussion on this process.” — Oklahoma City

Superintendent Karl Springer

“The overall plan seems very punitive in nature.”

Drew Eichelberger, Western Oaks Elementary

principal in the Putnam City School District

“We ask that the state Department of Education provide facts and logical explanation prior to implementing these new rules.” — Connie Cox, member of the Dale School Board

“The deck has been stacked against us, and very few schools and school districts will be able to achieve the A category.” — Angela Monson, Oklahoma City School Board chairwoman
