OEA Educators and Clergy Conference

On Tuesday and Wednesday, educators and clergy from across Oklahoma met in Norman at the OEA's Educators and Clergy conference to discuss the role of faith based groups in public education.

Topics of discussion included:
*Why should people of faith get involved with public schools?
*Working with challenges facing ethnic minority communities.
*Why we can't leave out faith in closing achievement gaps?
*Ethics: First Amendment Issues
*Being pro-active around religion's role in public education.

It was a tremendous gathering of a wide variety of educators, faith based leaders and administrators making a difference for great public schools.

You don't have to take my word about the success of the conference. Find out what others are saying: Oklahoman stories 1, 2, 3, 4, Oklahoman Podcast, Pastor Todd Littleton 1, 2

Hello Roy,

Glad to participate in the recent Clergy Educators Conference. Just a small note, my last name is spelled, "Littleton." Growing up and beyond we often were confused with "Littlejohn."

Looking forward to where this conference takes us.

Sorry about that Todd. I don't know where that came from. There are no excuses, especially since I linked your blog in the story.

I'm looking forward to hearing the results from the community teams.
