Oklahoma House Member Says It's Not State's Job to Educate

Lead in text: 
While he says he supports the Oklahoma constitutional requirement of free public education for grades K-12, state Rep. Mike Reynolds doesn't extend his backing to higher education.
Oklahoma state Rep. Mike Reynolds (R-Oklahoma City) told fellow lawmakers last week that they have no responsibility to ensure students have access to a college education. The state's legislature has been debating a bill that would expand Oklahoma's Promise, a program that provides post-secondary education scholarships to qualified low-income students.
