NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:
Our present Superintendent of Schools in Oklahoma, Janet Barresi, has now presided over two years in a row of botched end-of-year testing for our students. She conveniently blamed the website run by the testing service she hired both times.
My question is why isn’t she being berated by the media and powers to be for this fiasco like President Obama was for the faulty room out of the ACA just a few short months ago?
Could it be that she is the conservative darling of those who want vouchers replacing public schools?
Or does she get two passes because being a dentist and not an educator makes her learning curve longer? If Pres. Obama caught it for a flawed website once, where does her pass on this monumental double screw up come from? Perhaps we operate on a different standard for our Republicans?
