Tulsa's Public Education Crisis

Nothing really new here in T-Town.

We are not exempt from the issues facing public education by cities around the country. At least the courts haven't taken over public education, like they did in Kansas City a few years ago.

Anyone out there that still believes that public education can heal itself?

If you do, just plan on more stories like the national chamber of commerce giving all of Oklahoma public education a grade of F.

Nothing has changed my mind. Tulsa's public education is incapable of reforming itself in any meaningful way. It will have to have reforms imposed upon it. And I hope we have non-academic types involved in that process.

Lobby your state elected officials to expand the sponsors for charter schools and change the funding to be distinct from traditional public education.
