Common Core standards have been adopted by the State of Oklahoma, yet there's still debate over whether this is helpful or harmful for students. This OETA Oklahoma News Report from July, 2013, discusses the pros and cons of common core state standards with Ann Caine, Superintendent of Stillwater Public Schools; Amber England, Government Affairs Director of Stand for Children, an organization that supports Common Core; Jenni White, President of R.O.P.E., Restore Oklahoma Public Education, a group opposed to Common Core; and, via Skype from San Diego, Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University.
