Oklahoma gets an "A" for getting students online at school. A report by "Education Week" ranks Oklahoma 11th nationally in the ratio of students per Internet-connected computer.

That's 5.6 students for every computer. The national average is 6.8. 91% of Oklahoma schools are online, just below the national average of 92%. State Superintendent Sandy Garrett disagrees with that statistic.

Garrett says a state survey shows nearly 98% of Oklahoma schools have Internet access.
