The Oklahoma Parents and Educators for Public Education group on Facebook has topped 20,000 members, and has, by its own admission, been instrumental in helping promote public education at the Capitol. One of its members, a blogger, career teacher and Republican, considers what elements are leading to the group’s success.
Here is what I have come to understand about this group and why it is working. And it is working, I am sure of that. We may not be where we want to be, but we are far better off because of the efforts of the members of OPE4PE.
