Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Look! We've been dinked again. 43rd out of 50 in the best to worst listing. Now I'm not from here, but, people, It's not that bad. I like it much better than some other places I've lived. I could definitely list more than 6 states that I wouldn't leave here for even if the $ was good. Even those mor...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

I was watching the weather channel this morning and they said the whole state was closing schools. They said it was two years ago today that they had tornadoes in that area and quite a few children were killed. I did not catch where the man was located that was giving the information other than he ...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Sandi I hope you and your family are safe? I saw on the news where the state of Oklahoma canceled school today due to the severe weather. Stay safe and let me know you are all ok. They preemptively closed all the still-open schools in Tulsa and a couple close cities, along with OSU and RSU (state c...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

The one place higher ed 'gets' us - for whatever reason (bias of some kind), home schooled kids in OK have to get higher ACT and/or SAT scores than public-schooled kids in order to get into college. Not fair by any stretch, but it is what it is and we're prepping for that, too. A friend of DH's has ...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Oklahoma is consistently ranked somewhere in the 45-49th spots out of the 50 states when it comes to quality of education. Which is just weird, really, because it's not a 'poor' state. But spending per student is low. Don't mess with their football programs, though - those appear to be funded separa...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

8 of 14... 57.14% :D Not much to report. Work is still working, DH is still away, kids are still doing the kid thing, we home school year-round so they're busy, though even if they public schooled they'd still have around 10 days left in their academic year in this area. They're also the yard crew f...
