OKLAHOMA CITY (March 12, 2021) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks today following the revelation of racist comments made by announcers at a high school girls’ basketball game.

“The remarks made were sickening and vile. It is critical on all of us to be clear that racism has no place in society and must never be tolerated, especially in our public schools. My heart aches for the young female athletes who were subjected to this hateful and disgusting tirade.”
