To strengthen in schooling, Oklahoma ought to listen to lecturers, pupils

Lorrie Bamford is a member of the Deer Creek School Board.

I lately attended a screening of “Civil War (or Who Do We Think We Are)” by Rachel Boynton on Education and learning in America adopted by a panel dialogue on the upcoming of Oklahoma’s general public schooling technique.

The title got my focus for the reason that, as a sitting faculty board member for the Deer Creek school district, we had a patron not long ago yell at us from the podium in the course of the general public speaking part of the small business conference, “Who in the hell do you believe you are?” I am selected her concern was rhetorical however, I have usually imagined about my reply because that conference.

Rhetorical or not, faculty board users are discouraged from answering queries throughout the community comment part of the meetings so as not to possibility deviation from the posted agenda in compliance with the Oklahoma Open Conferences Act. Therefore, we basically pay attention.
