Southern Baptist contention

Clarence G. Oliver, Jr., Earl Garrison, and David K. Pennington are all Baptists. These Baptist gentlemen all share a history of presiding over school districts which, as a matter of law and public policy, must (like Peter) deny Christ. And as plaintiffs in a current lawsuit, they're now leading an effort to discriminate against Christians on the basis of their religion.

By way of contrast, Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is now asking the question if sending one's children to a public school is even a permissible option anymore. "For Christians who take the Christian worldview seriously and who understand the issues at stake," he says, "the answer is increasingly no."

That's a pretty big gap.

School choice and parental rights

"Parents should not be forced, for financial reasons, to send their children to schools in which the values taught conflict with those they want to pass on to their children," writes Melissa Moschella, an assistant professor of philosophy at the Catholic University of America. "An effective voucher or scholarship program of some sort is therefore also a requirement of parental rights."

Former state treasurer points to Oklahoma's school performance woes

"Our business community is saying that the current education product doesn’t meet their needs," writes former state treasurer Scott Meacham, a Democrat.

According to performance on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, just 25 percent of Oklahoma’s eighth-graders are proficient in math and 29 percent are proficient in reading. Some 40 percent of our high school graduates take remedial classes once they are enrolled in college because they didn’t exit high school prepared for the challenges of higher education.
