The word 'liberal' doesn't apply to Oklahoma schools

I had to chuckle at the front page article today regarding State Schools Superintendent Janet Barresi’s attempt to blame “the liberal education establishment” for not giving teachers pay raises. Does she not know that the definition of liberal is “generous and openhanded”? If the education establishment were indeed liberal, the teachers would have their raises.
