Oklahoma Secretary of Education Ryan Walters recently tweeted about the situation, saying that children suffer when administrators act out of fear and not in the best interests of their kids and their future.

Not too long after Walters posted this tweet, Dr. Rick Cobb, superintendent for Mid-Del Schools, responded about his district’s struggle to keep doors open.
