Driver’s Education is one of the main things that students start to think about when they get to high school. Webster Broadcasting and Digital Media Magnet is one of the many schools in Tulsa Public Schools that doesn’t offer the program.
“I’m an ex-Drivers Ed teacher, and it was unfortunate to get rid of it. It was a good program,” Webster Assistant Principal Dale Edwards said.
Driver’s Ed not offered anymore because of student allocations. This means that enough students didn’t enroll in the program, Webster Assistant Principal Saundra Ford said.
Also, Mrs. Ford said that not enough students were qualified to take Driver’s Ed because they had not passed their eighth grade reading test. The reading test is just a test to make sure that students know how to read. Students have to pass the reading test to qualify to take the Learner’s Permit test.
