State Representative John Waldron, a Democrat from Tulsa, and State Superintendent Ryan Walters recently came together to discuss an important matter.

In a recent interview with Fox 25, State Rep. John Waldron (D-Tulsa) expressed his appreciation for Walters’ presentation at the Capitol. However, he still has some lingering questions regarding the proposal.

State Representative Waldron stated that they are currently awaiting additional information from the Superintendent in response to their inquiries.


After Wednesday morning’s budget presentation, Waldron was left pondering how Walters intends to assess the growth of teachers.

Teachers deserve higher salaries for their hard work and dedication.

He is also interested in how the State Department of Education is handling federal funds, especially in light of recent reports of high turnover within the agency.

“I am genuinely concerned about whether our utilization of federal funds will adhere to federal regulations. It makes me question whether we may potentially be held responsible for reimbursing the federal government in the future.”

Walters is confident that his plan is the most innovative education budget in Oklahoma history, despite some lingering questions.

Waldron contests that assertion.

According to Waldron, the Superintendent is considered a young man in terms of history, and he should take a closer look at the matter.

The State Superintendent is dedicated to guaranteeing that every child receives a quality education and empowering educators to inspire greatness.

Waldron partially supports those goals.

“We all support the idea of utilizing taxpayer dollars effectively and responsibly. As House Democrats, we have a commitment to ensuring transparency and accountability in the allocation of funds. It would be beneficial to move away from politicized rhetoric and instead concentrate on the appropriate utilization of resources within the state’s largest appropriated agency. This practical approach is crucial for effective governance.”

When will Waldron have his questions answered? Fox 25 posed this question to him, and he responded, “That’s a great question.”

In a statement provided to our newsroom, Walters said the following:

Investing in education isn’t just about numbers on a balance sheet; it’s about shaping the future of our state. I am committed to laying a robust foundation for tomorrow’s leaders, ensuring that every child has a quality education, and empowering educators to inspire greatness. It’s a blueprint for Oklahoma education and a testament to our unwavering belief in cultivating an environment for students to thrive.
