Rep Ann Coody to represent Oklahoma on the Education Commission of the States

State Representative Ann Coody (R-Lawton) has been appointed by House Speaker Chris Benge as the Oklahoma Legislature’s representative on the Education Commission of the States. The Education Commission of the States is part of the Compact for Education that meets in Denver, Colo. It provides a forum for all branches of government in the compact states to discuss educational policies. “The House leadership is committed to providing greater accountability and standards to Oklahoma schools,” Coody said. “As chair of the Oklahoma Common Education Committee, I will already have a role to play in crafting educational policy here. Being on this commission will provide a view of policy in other states.”
