Most Oklahoma students flourish in public schools, others need support

The stream of negative news about the state of education in Oklahoma can be disheartening. Between teacher shortages, high administrative costs and low per-pupil spending, it often seems impossible to right the ship.

And now, families are grappling with skyrocketing inflation just as the 2022-2023 school year is set to begin. American households expect to spend a whopping $ 700 on school supplies this year, up from roughly $ 360 in 2021. Obviously, this simply isn’t feasible for many Oklahoma families.

But luckily, there’s a way for concerned education supporters to support public and private school students through the Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Act. The program allows individuals and businesses to receive Oklahoma state income tax credits when they donate either to an Education Improvement Grant Organization (EIGO) and / or a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) recognized by the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
