Daryl Gandy walks through the halls of Ulysses S. Grant High School in south Oklahoma City.
“We have 1,800 kids in this school that was built for 1,250,” Gandy said. “We have about 30 teachers, myself included, that don’t have a classroom.”
As Gandy strolls through the school cafeteria, he points outside to a white, nondescript building with a long metal ramp.
“These are our portables,” Gandy said. “We call it the trailer park. We have about 10 classrooms out here. This helps some of our overcrowding situation but it definitely didn’t fix it.”
