The year 2020 is one that aims at massive changes to Oklahoma’s educational institutions, its public service sector, and even its governing bodies–changes that proclaim to be “data-driven” and “evidence-based” and that hold out the promise of an efficient, transparent, and equitable future. A new mode of social service finance and delivery – the Pay for Success contract (PFS)  – is at the heart of these changes. This conference gathers together experts in social service finance (the PFS model), Oklahoma educators and policy advocates from PreK through university, journalists, and concerned citizens and parents in order to explore what effect these massive changes will have on Oklahoma’s children, on the quality of Oklahoma’s public services, and on the vitality of representative government in our State.
