Joy Hofmeister reflects on first year, looks ahead to challenges
Joy Hofmeister admittedly wasn't at full voice today, but that didn't prevent her from stopping by our studio for a quick conversation.
Hofmeister, Oklahoma's State Superintendent of Public Instruction, was at The Oklahoman for an editorial board meeting. While in the building, our education reporter Tim Willert invited her into our studio to talk about the No Child Left Behind Act vote in Congress.
As our Chris Casteel reported last week, "Four of the five U.S. House members from Oklahoma voted for the education bill meant to replace the much-criticized No Child Left Behind Act. The Every Student Succeeds Act passed the House on Wednesday night by a vote of 359-64. The bill is expected to be approved by the Senate and signed by the president this month."
