In 2013, the United States Department of Education awarded $10.4 billion in federal funds to 13 pilot schools to help improve high school graduation rates in the United State.
But some critics say the money will likely only help the wealthiest students at the expense of lower-income students.
Tulsa’s Taylor High School has been ranked by the Associated Press as the country’s top high school.
Students from the school’s district, the Tulsa School District, were among the top 100 students in the nation in math and science at the beginning of the academic year.
They also were among a group of the nation’s most disadvantaged students that made up the lowest 15 percent of students in grades 6 through 12, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Taylor High School’s graduation rate was about 38 percent.
Its students made up about 13 percent of Tulsa’s students.
Students in the Tulsa Public Schools system, which includes Tulsa, are more than four times as likely as Tulsa’s student body to graduate from high school compared to Tulsa Public schools students who do not attend the school, according the Tulsa World.
Taylor was one of 10 schools that received federal funds in the past decade to help them boost their graduation rates, according Toews.
The other schools are: Westfield Community Academy in Florida, the St. Charles School District in Minnesota, the Elkhart School District of Illinois, the Cleveland School District and the Kansas City School District.
The goal of the pilot programs is to help schools achieve higher graduation rates by providing the best education possible for students who need it most, Toews said.
But critics say these programs aren’t working and say that many students are not graduating at the rates they need to.
Travis Fenton, an attorney with the Education Law Center in Dallas, Texas, said he’s concerned that the pilot schools are providing only a small portion of the education that students in Tulsa need.
He said the programs are often designed to give a specific set of students a high school diploma that does not include the other resources students need to graduate and go to college.
Fenton said that even though Tulsa’s school district has been the subject of a number of lawsuits, the district is not paying the full cost of the schools.
The district pays for everything from books to transportation to equipment, he said.
The program that will likely benefit most students is a voucher that gives students free textbooks and supplies.
Fenton said he would be surprised if more than half of Tulsa students who attend the schools would attend college.
The Tulsa City Schools District did not respond to requests for comment on the pilot program.
TCSD has about 4,700 students, including approximately 2,000 students enrolled in special education.
The district did not provide figures on the number of students enrolled through the program, which started in 2014.TULSA IS THE ONLY CITY IN THE UNITED STATES TO HIGHLY COLLECT COSTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL RECRUITS According to a recent Associated Press report, Tulsa ranked the lowest in the country for how much a student’s family budget has to spend on attending school.
According to the report, the average Tulsa family spends about $4,900 per year on a typical school year, or $13,200 per year if a student earns up to $20,000 in the state.
The report says the city also ranked the highest for the cost of living, at $2,700 per person.
The report comes as Tulsa is one of several states where students are being required to pay more to attend school, such as New York, Maryland, New Jersey and Colorado.
According in the report that Oklahoma has been among the worst performing states in terms of how much students have to pay.
The Associated Press says Tulsa’s high school students spent more than $6,000 on supplies and transportation for their academic year, and $8,500 on uniforms.TBS, the public school system that includes Tulsa and many other parts of the state, is expected to spend $9,000 per student, which will total $23.7 million per year.
It also is required to spend at least $3,600 per student for transportation.
Tresco Community Schools, a private, charter school that opened in April 2017, is currently being sued by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, according TBS and its attorney, Jonathan Pritchard.
Pritchard said the suit was a result of a state investigation into TBS.
The department was unable to reach Pritcher for comment, according a statement on the Tulsa City School Board website.
Prischard said TBS was not obligated to pay the lawsuit.
TBS does not pay any student fees, according state law.
The school board said it will not comment on pending litigation.
In Tulsa, the state is working on a new law to make sure that students who are receiving assistance from TBS pay for it, Pritchers said.
He also said Tulsa is not going to stop its high school
