Educators Meet with City Leaders

Tulsa Public School Superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard says a meeting with city leaders surpassed his expectations. City Councilors met with area superintendents and school board members at an education summit.

Dr. Ballard says he sees the summit as part of a continuing dialog on the future of public education in the Tulsa area.

The struggle to deal with funding cuts on the state level while the student population continues to grow is a major topic. Dr. Ballard says city councilors are sympathetic to public education’s plight, and he’s encouraged by their support.
