Oklahoma City schools superintendent says he won’t step down
Karl Springer shakes his head when he thinks about what happened at Douglass High School.
“There’s no doubt the issues that have arisen at Douglass, they’re disgusting,” said Springer, superintendent of Oklahoma City Public Schools. “ ... Ironically, the reason I came here was to find things like what happened at Douglass. We set about trying to get these things straightened out.”
What started as allegations of grade fixing and absence fraud turned into a broader investigation into chronic academic mismanagement.
