Teacher Walkout, George Kaiser & Scott Pruitt

Apr 6, 2018

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about the historic teacher walkout which has brought thousands of educators and supporters to call for more school funding and Tulsa oilman George Kaiser says more tax hikes are needed after pay raises for education and state workers last week.

The trio also discusses a warning by outgoing OU President David Boren of a looming cliff for higher education in Oklahoma without more financial support from lawmakers and former state Attorney General and now head of the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt faces more ethical questions related to travel, living arrangements and office spending.
