Governor Stitt Applauds Statewide Virtual Charter School Board's Vote to Approve Religious Charter School
Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement applauding the Oklahoma Statewide Virtual Charter School Board’s vote to approve the nation’s first religious charter school:
"I applaud the Oklahoma Statewide Virtual Charter School Board’s courage to approve the authorization for St. Isidore of Seville Catholic Virtual School. This is a win for religious liberty and education freedom in our great state, and I am encouraged by these efforts to give parents more options when it comes to their child’s education.
Oklahomans support religious liberty for all and support an increasingly innovative educational system that expands choice. Today, with the nation watching, our state showed that we will not stand for religious discrimination."
