Secretary of Education Hudecki stepping down



“Phyllis has always been a tireless advocate for higher standards and greater accountability in education,” Fallin said. “I appreciate her work to better interface education and training programs with the needs of the business community, something that is absolutely vital to preparing our workforce for the high skill, high salary jobs we are trying to bring to Oklahoma. My thanks go out to Phyllis for her years of service and her continued dedication to improving education in Oklahoma. Though she is returning to the private sector, Phyllis will continue to be a tremendous source of information for my administration as we work to strengthen education. I look forward to continuing to draw on her expertise in her new role at OBEC.”
