OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s largest virtual charter school system has filed a lawsuit against a state senator, alleging he knowingly published false statements about the school that he refuses to retract. Epic Charter Schools filed the libel and slander lawsuit against Sen. Ron Sharp Monday in Oklahoma County District Court, seeking at least $75,000 in damages. He contends the system illegally inflated its in-person enrollment to attract more state funding.
