School leaders discuss “no confidence” vote against Barressi
OKLAHOMA CITY – Aggravation over the state’s new ‘A- F’ grading system is leading to sharp criticism of Oklahoma State Superintendent Janet Barressi.
One of her harshest critics, Broken Arrow Superintendent Jarod Mendenhall, is now asking school administrators across the state to join him for a “no confidence” vote of their leader.
The effort will be purely symbolic because a “no confidence” vote has no legal weight.
Mendenhall says he and other educators say they are tired of not having their voices heard by the administration when it comes to school reform.
He believes the state’s new grading system has serious flaws.
He says he is working on a timeline and meeting place for educators to decide on whether or not to have a “no confidence” vote.
