When “No Child Left Behind” legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2001, ironically it left behind many homeless students in Oklahoma City because of its provisions preventing student tracking and selective school admissions. Oklahoma State Representative Joe Dorman is sponsoring legislation which could change that. Tim Willert‘s article and video in today’s Daily Oklahoman, “Oklahoma City private school teaches hope where little exists,” shares a bit of this story and effort to restore funding to Positive Tomorrows in Oklahoma City where my wife teaches 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Please share this article and video with others you know, and if you’re an Oklahoma voter contact your elected officials! Tell them you want their support for this bill! (It’s House Bill 2230)
