Oklahoma Governor Says Criticism of Schools Grades Unproductive

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA- Educators are speaking out and expressing criticism about Oklahoma's A through F grading system for schools, calling it unproductive and a threat to funding.

This criticism comes only days before the grades are to be released.

School officials have been vocal about the grading system since its debut in 2012 referring to research reports from both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University that call the system "flawed with very little meaning."

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin disagrees.

Her spokesman Alex Weintz said the criticism only cripples the governor's case that increased funding will improve school and student performance.
