A special town hall meeting has been called for Duncan Tuesday night, and the topic is scheduled to be public education. The meeting will take place tomorrow night at 6:00 p.m. at Duncan High School, 515th North 19th street.

State Superintendent of Public Education Joy Hofmeister will host the event, and the public is invited to share their ideas on how to strengthen public education and refocus on the needs of individual students. The hour-long meeting is being held in conjunction with parent-teacher conferences in the Duncan Public School District. The Duncan High band will perform at 5:30 to kick-off the meeting.

Parents, educators, community leaders and the general public are welcome to attend and discuss ways to help the Oklahoma State Department of Education create a comprehensive plan to bolster performance for all students, while also reducing barriers which may hamper student and their academic performance.
