OKLAHOMA CITY – Gov. Mary Fallin has vetoed a bipartisan bill the superintendent of public instruction assailed as a phony “social promotion” of public school students with reading problems.
Fallin said she refused to sign House Bill 2625 because of testing data showing that 16 percent of state third graders, 7,970 out of 48,691 tested, did not have satisfactory reading scores this past school year.
In the state’s largest districts, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, nearly one-third of students failed the test.
