Hofmeister: Change needed in Oklahoma


ENID, Okla. —

Tilley said local parents, school board members, teachers and school administrators are interested in seeing students succeed at school.

“There seems to be a perception that we don’t care,” Tilley said. “I take great exception to that. We do care.”

“I am ready to restore positive and conservative leadership to Oklahoma schools,” Hofmeister said. “I am ready to restore freedom to parents and students and to bring an end to the centralization of our schools. Our wonderful state is being held back by the failures we have had to endure in the administration of Oklahoma education.”

Hofmeister said the need for change is critical.

“Our kids deserve a new leader,” Hofmeister said. “We simply cannot allow our students, parents or teachers to endure another four years of failed leadership.”
