Donation to Save School District Jobs

An anonymous donation of $600,000 will save 15 teacher jobs that were recently eliminated in the Tulsa Public Schools.  Superintendent Keith Ballard also says additional jobs will be saved after budget reviews. He expects that number to be around 15-t0-18 jobs.                                 

That means about 45 jobs are still at risk. The district says it's searching for that funding. The cuts were brought about by the legislature’s failure to allocate more money for common education.
