An Okla. Black student’s perspective on Teacher Walk, Mental Health, and Accountability

“Poor, black and brown students in my community don’t see the same stuff upper-class students do. When we get out of high school, we go straight into the workforce. The idea of college is a distant one. Teachers cannot solve this issue by themselves.”


Celebrating McLain’s new multimillion-dollar sports facility

“The students and community are excited. They’ve waited for years to have a facility that is up to par with the rest of the city. Every time I go somewhere, from the barbershop to the grocery store and department stores, everyone is always asking me, ‘Is it ready? When is it going to be ready? I can’t wait.’ I show them a few pictures, and they say, ‘Man, that’s great. That’s cool, man. I love this! This is going to be great!’.”
