Corrections and Clarifications
Our ultimate goal is to be both accountable for our coverage and transparent with our audience. To that end, any StateImpact Oklahoma story that requires a factual correction will be updated to reflect the change, and include an “editor’s note” to say what the nature of the correction or clarification was. For example:
We reported that a student at the for-profit Kaplan University had been seeking a law degree and had not been told that participation in the program would not allow him to take the bar exam in Iowa. We should have made clear that the student was enrolled in a B.A. program in paralegal studies, not in a law degree program.
In addition, all online errors that get corrected will be tagged and aggregated on this page. Email Joe Wertz with your requests for corrections or clarifications.
