I will faithfully execute the public education provisions of the Oklahoma Constitution in the most efficient manner possible. Additionally, I will increase funding to education by entering into new gaming compacts with the Native Nations on class III gaming. I will work with the legislature to ensure that any additional revenues brought in from these new compacts will go primarily to education. I will also work with the legislature to streamline the Department of Education as it exists between the school principle and the state superintendent. Lastly, with some of the increased funding for education I will push for there to be tablet computers issued to every teacher and student in our state. This classroom advancement will eliminate the need for the purchase, storage, and issuance of paper books which will also reduce our state’s consumption of paper based resources. Switching to a digital curriculum will also make the delivery and quality control of instruction from lecture to exams much more efficient, manageable and traceable.
