#oklaed Chat Questions for 6/5/16
We often say that all we need in education is more money and more respect. One resource that goes along with both of those is time. I’ll be moderating tonight’s #oklaed chat, and if you want to preview the questions, here you go. At the end of the night, I’ll post again with some of my favorite responses included.
