Tulsa Public School's superintendent Dr. Keith Ballard called in live to FOX23 News this morning on Tuesday to discuss the decision to keep schools open. Ballard said the decision stemmed a lot on the forecast and the conditions on the side roads. He said they take children's safety seriously and that it's a complicated process. They know they can not please everyone.

Ballard added that schools would not have an early day or close prematurely. He also said they did not anticipate bus problems because temperatures were not cold enough.

Don't turn a blind eye to situations that you are unfamiliar with. TPS already has some pilot programs in place pioneering homeschool.

Yeah truly sad they say they care about are kids, but are putting there lives in danger constantly just to provide a babysitter for parents to go to work. Then when the unfortunate happens all that they can say is sorry. That's not good enough for me, thank God my kids don't ride the bus.

Well, this is just one more bad decision coming from Tulsa Public Schools. I don't know that we'll ever be able to trust those in charge of the Tulsa Public School system. Perhaps someone, at some point in time, will come forward and make better decisions that will positively impact the students at TPS; so far, however, that has not happened.
