Common Core, high stakes testing, A to F grading of schools, teacher shortages… it’s hard to sort out what is going on in Oklahoma schools, and we’re in the middle of an election that is likely to change the direction again. Join us for On Tap, where we’ll discuss with teachers, administrators and the Oklahoma Department of Education what has happened and what we can expect in our kids’ classrooms next.
The event starts at 6 p.m., Wednesday, August 27 at Picasso Café located at 3009 Paseo Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73103.
There are approximately 7,000 languages spoken on planet Earth. But more than half of those could vanish before the end of this century, and nowhere is the problem more evident than in Oklahoma. Kelly Burley has more on the challenge at hand, and what KOSU will be doing to help turn an idea into action in the revitalization of some of our state’s American Indian languages.
