Observercast Episode 32: No Good Choices


As she begins her sixth school year as state superintendent, Joy Hofmeister’s challenges are no longer primarily academic standards and funding. She also is guiding Oklahoma’s 700,000 students and 43,000 teachers as they gather in-person or virtually [or a mix of both] for instruction during a deadly pandemic. In the fifth of our back-to-school series, today’s Observercast Episode 32: No Good Choices, Hofmeister discusses the challenges facing the state’s 500-plus school districts and what she and her team are doing to ensure academic rigor and to meet student, faculty, staff and community needs.
