Capitol 2The Oklahoma State Supreme Court on Monday, March 28, 2016, was asked to grant relief on behalf of 48 public school districts statewide. Taxpayers in the counties where these school districts are located paid additional taxes from 1992-2014 that, by law, should have remained with the local schools. For 22 years children in those schools did not have the educational experience they deserved and funds that should have stayed in local districts were retained in the state coffers then diverted to other school districts where taxpayers paid a lower tax rate. It is estimated that more than 150 school districts and hundreds of thousands of school children have been negatively impacted.
