The public will get a chance to question new Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Rob Neu about his policies and goals for the district during a public forum on education Tuesday.
Neu is in his third month as Oklahoma City’s superintendent, but has already drawn attention with plans to increase teacher pay, implement more technology in the classroom and enact a student-loan forgiveness program for University of Central Oklahoma students who teach in the district for three years. He and new Associate Superintendent Aurora Lora, who will also appear at the forum, have said they wish to provide more support to principals and teachers and strengthen the curriculum.
The forum, organized by non-profit investigate news organization Oklahoma Watch, will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Kamps 1910 Café, 10 NE 10th St., in Oklahoma City.
Neu, who was hired to replaced interim Superintendent Dave Lopez in July, previously was superintendent for Federal Way Public Schools near Seattle.
