Eliminating Education Barriers

KWGS News File Photo

The Tulsa School District is moving forward with its “Leading for Equity” initiative. Tulsa School Superintendent Deborah Gist wants equal learning opportunities for all Tulsa students.

Gist wants to remove the predictability of a student’s success based on social, cultural or geographic factors. A student’s ability to learn should not be based on his or her ethnicity or their neighborhood location. She says such barriers must be eliminated to ensure education uniformity across the district.
