DURANT, OK -- Bennington Schools Superintendent, Donna Anderson, is running for Oklahoma State Superintendent, and spoke about her stance on certain issues in Durant Saturday.

Anderson says she believes Oklahoma's education system is in a "state of confusion". She says there's a disconnect between educators and those at the state level.

Anderson wants to do away with End of Instruction, or EOI testing. Instead, she wants to focus on the ACT because she feels that's the test that matters.

She also says the new A-F grading system is a good idea, but needs major tweaking.

"I really feel for the teachers of the state of Oklahoma, because they want to do the best for children, but they're not being given the tools. They're not being given the training. They're not being given adequate resources to be able to meet any of the reform standards," Anderson said.

Anderson will campaign until the democratic primary election on June 24th. The election is November 14th of next year.
