OEA President Linda Hampton’s statement on the election of Joy Hofmeister as State Superintendent

"The Oklahoma Education Association is excited about the new direction public education will take with the election of Joy Hofmeister as State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

"Ms. Hofmeister’s experience as an educator, a business woman engaged in assisting under-performing students and as a member of the Oklahoma State Board of Education gives her a breadth of knowledge to draw upon as the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s (OSDE) leader.

"During her campaign, Ms. Hofmeister demonstrated that she clearly understands the need for increased public education funding and decreased high-stakes testing. She also vowed that educators will have a voice in the decision affecting public education, which OEA believes is long overdue.

"OEA looks forward to working with Ms. Hofmeister and the OSDE in a new and more positive era for public education in Oklahoma."
