State Superintendent Janet Barresi stated in a press release that she was “outraged” and called the situation “completely unacceptable.” Oklahoma is currently in its first year of a possible five-year, $16 million contract with CTB/McGraw-Hill for testing services.

“The children are priority No. 1 and this is not a good environment for their testing, nor is it good for their teachers,” Fair said. “We’ll likely have discussions about other testing companies and take this into account when looking at renewing the contract.”
