Recently I was asked what my Christmas wish would be for Oklahoma schools. There’s no way I could narrow that down to just one, so let me share my wish list. I would wish for caring and engaged parents or guardians in the life of each child. Children need an adult at home who will teach them right from wrong, and guide them into becoming responsible, honest and kind individuals. Children need an adult who will help them with reading, math and other homework. Children need a safe environment, a quiet place to study and an understanding of education’s value.
