Oklahoma Board settles 2017 suit seeking money for charters

The Associated Press - March 27, 2021 11:43 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma State Board of Education voted to settle a lawsuit filed by charter schools seeking tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money. Board members made the motion to settle the lawsuit in a split 4-3 vote on Thursday.

The Oklahoma Public Charter School Association sued the state Board of Education in July 2017, claiming the schools are due an equal share of revenues. The vote on Thursday came against strong objections of State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister and apparently the legal advice of the board’s own attorney.
