Oklahoma's Superintendent Of Education Testifies Before Congress

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma's Superintendent of Public Instruction testified before a U.S. House subcommittee Wednesday.

Joy Hofmeister, and other education leaders, spoke on the Every Student Succeeds Act and what she called the importance of state and local control over public education.

Hofmeister spoke to members of the subcommittee on Early Childhood Elementary and Secondary Education.

"What I want to you to hear very clearly is, number one, hold us accountable for results for kids, but don't tell us how we achieve that. We know at the state level, as leaders, what works best in our own states and we share the goal of having every one of our children ready for the next step in learning," Hofmeister said.

She talked specifically about challenges facing McClain High School and the turnover that the school has seen over 25 years.
