Tulsans like what they’ve seen so far of Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Keith Ballard, but they haven’t seen much change in the district’s performance, the most recent Oklahoma Poll found.
Nearly two-thirds of the 405 Tulsa residents surveyed by SoonerPoll.com from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 gave Ballard a favorable approval rating. Only 10 percent disapproved of the job he’s done since taking over the district last October.
“I see him being more open,” said poll respondent Richard Bishop, whose grandson just entered grade school in TPS. “He’s made some adjustments, the school board is giving him direction, and I think he can take us there.”
