Parents try to save Langston Hughes Academy after it loses accreditation


    After losing its accreditation last week, Langston Hughes Academy held a "parent's press conference" Wednesday to talk about saving the school.

    Dean of Students Justin Daniels said it was an "opportunity for the media and the city to hear directly from parents."

    Daniels explained why parents felt it was important to hold the "Save Our School" press conference in a statement:

    This is an opportunity for the media and the city to hear directly from our parents. Our parents are solidly behind our efforts to bring the state of Oklahoma back to the table. We feel that the facts, fairness and the data are on our side.

    Tulsa's Langston Hughes Academy for Arts and Technology will lose its state accreditation by the end of the school year.

    The Oklahoma Board of Education voted Thursday to remove the academy's accreditation and create a team to handle the transfer of students to Tulsa Public Schools.
