Last week, Governor Kevin Stitt requested a full audit of the Oklahoma State Department of Education after a previous audit of EPIC Charter Schools revealed the scammy district was ripping off taxpayers.
While Stitt states that the reason for this investigation would be to make sure our state government is being held accountable, State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister accused the governor of attacking the public education system. Whatever. Although I can’t think of any other time when our passive-aggressive, vindictive Governor has been accused of making things difficult for a state agency when things didn’t go his way, I’m sure he has good reason to request the investigation.
In fact, here are some financial fiascos Stitt hopes to uncover in the audit of the Oklahoma State Department of Education!
