Oklahoma Democrats Prove Commitment to Education
Democrats in the state legislature and Democratic Governor Brad Henry this week rolled out plans to improve Oklahoma's education system. Democrats are dedicated to increasing opportunities that support K-12 development and growing Oklahoma's college scholarship program, Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program (OHLAP).
"Governor Henry and Democrats in the State Senate and State House led by Senator Mike Morgan and Representative Danny Morgan have all made expanded opportunities for education a core principle in the 2007 legislative agenda," Pryor said. "As elected leaders, these Democrats are making sure young Oklahomans have the tools they need to develop and succeed in life. We owe the citizens of Oklahoma a high standard of stewardship and Democrats are committed to building our state with smart investments in our youth -- the future of Oklahoma. We are committed to a complete education system that gives Oklahoma students the tools and opportunities to achieve the American Dream."
