Some area school superintendents are upset the state is holding onto money they say their schools need.

In tonight’s FOX23 Investigation, Janna Clark looks into how the money is being used to educate virtual students and the possibility some companies are getting rich in the process.

Tonight, meet two girls who are going through two different virtual school programs, one through Tulsa Public Schools and one through a charter school run by a for-profit provider.

The Tulsa Public Schools superintendent says those providers are profiting by educating kids and they shouldn’t, but the State School Superintendents says parents should have a choice.

Tonight at 9, FOX23 looks at where your tax dollars are going and how the providers are spending it.
