There is currently no sentencing commission and there are no sentencing guidelines in Oklahoma. Courts may, in their discretion, consider evidence of aggravating and mitigating factors at the sentencing phase to determine the exact punishment. In the late 1990s, Oklahoma enacted truth in sentencing and a community corrections scheme for certain crimes.
Violence Policy Center;
This study examines the problem of black homicide victimization at the state level by analyzing unpublished Supplementary Homicide Report (SHR) data for black homicide victimization submitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The information used for this report is for the year 2017. This is the first analysis of the 2017 data on black homicide victims to offer breakdowns of cases in the 10 states with the highest black homicide victimization rates and the first to rank the states by the rate of black homicide victims.It is important to note that the SHR data used in this report comes from law enforcement reporting at the local level. While there are coding guidelines followed by the law enforcement agencies, the amount of information submitted to the SHR system, and the interpretation that results in the information submitted (for example, gang involvement) will vary from agency to agency. This study is limited by the quantity and degree of detail in the information submitted.

Oklahoma City Community Foundation;
This spring, as we broke ground on a new structure that will expand the capacity of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, we were reminded of the ground-breaking steps our founder, John E. Kirkpatrick, took in 1969. He built a framework of charitable support for the community, paving the way for many generous donors to join together with a common mission — to make a difference for good.

In light of the national uprising sparked by the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor (and building on other recent tragic movement moments going back to the 2014 murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri), NCRP is analyzing grantmaking by community foundations across the country to find out exactly how much they are – or are not – investing in Black communities.We started by looking at the latest available grantmaking data (2016-2018) of 25 community foundations (CFs) – from Los Angeles to New Orleans to New York City to St. Paul. These foundations represent a cross section of some of the country's largest community foundations as well as foundations in communities where NCRP has Black-led nonprofit allies.
Public Education Network (PEN);
The PEN national office launched a 2005 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) online survey to follow up on the 2004 survey. The 2004 survey generated 12,000 responses and greatly influenced the recommendations in the "Open to the Public" report released in March 2005. PEN was particularly interested in reaching grassroots constituencies, but the voices of everyone -- including educators -- were counted.
Kirkpatrick Foundation, Inc.;
The intent of this preliminary review is to begin to provide an understanding of the status of music education programs in the state of Oklahoma. This review illuminates some important insights regarding student access to Music courses, explores the impact of geography and considers the impact on music education of such factors as school size, free and reduced lunch, and wealth. Music education in the state of Oklahoma cannot adequately be represented by a statistic or broad sweeping generalization. The true, nuanced story of music education in Oklahoma is to be found in the variety of conditions present in regions, districts and individual schools. This report finds a range of regional factors that influence music education. Some issues do not present themselves until examining community influence. Additional issues become evident when we look at school type, school size and/or student population. These are the insights that exist "below the surface" of state-level percentages that are often obscured by aggregated information. Some findings that may appear to be true statewide are really only true for a small portion or a specific segment of schools. There are a handful of findings that will surprise even those who are knowledgeable about music education in Oklahoma. Some conventional wisdom will be debunked. One thing is clear. This report raises many more questions than it will answer.
