State Educators To Sue In Oklahoma Supreme Court

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A legal challenge will be filed in the Oklahoma Supreme Court by state educators opposed to an initiative petition designed to mandate that 65 percent of state education money go to classroom expenses.

The lawsuit will argue that Initiative Petition 731 violates provisions of the Oklahoma Constitution, including a section prohibiting state questions that embrace multiple subjects.

Proponents of the so-called "65 percent solution" say Oklahoma schools spend too much money on administration and other non-classroom items.

Opponents say the proposal will hurt school districts with high transportation costs. They also say it takes away local control.
