OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma educators say they are focused on student achievement and success in the classroom.
Educators from across the state appeared before the House Common Education Committee Tuesday as part of a legislative study of education practices in the state’s public schools.
Rep. Ann Coody of Lawton, a retired educator and chair of the committee, says the goal is to give educators a forum to share with other educators and lawmakers the successful instructional techniques they are using. Coody says some of the ideas could be used in future legislation.
Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Robert Neu says educators in the district – the state’s largest – feel a moral imperative to lift the performance of struggling students so all of the district’s 46,000 students are successful in the classroom.
