Working for or with Oklahoma City Public Schools can be an unbelievable experience. Unbelievable as in “beyond belief.” Substantial problems face our district and the least-discussed problem is poor leadership — leadership that is beyond belief. It's time to talk openly about a school system unable to develop a clear vision, inspire people to change or even hold leaders responsible.
The grading scandal at Douglass High School is just one more symptom exposing a failed district administrative team. We have leaders who not only can't fix a broken school district; evidently they can't even recognize problems that stand right before them.
