Tulsa District to Reconsider Decision on New Law (Jan 18, 2011)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Tulsa Public Schools board is set to reconsider its stance concerning a new state law requiring public schools to fund private-school scholarships for special education students.

The Tulsa district is one of six in northeastern Oklahoma that declined to obey the Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship law, claiming it is unconstitutional.

Two of those districts, Owasso and Bixby, have since reconsidered and now say they will follow the law, but the Tulsa, Jenks, and Union districts still are not doing so.

Television station KOTV reports that the Tulsa board will discuss the issue during a meeting on Tuesday night. In October, the board allowed six of the district's 6,000 special education students to attend private schools but threw out future requests.
