Oklahoma School Superintendent Joy Hofmeister is paying Tulsa a visit to talk about public education.

This comes 12 days after Hofmeister was charged with felony counts for allegedly raising money illegally, coordinating attack ads and conspiring to get around contribution laws. She pleaded not guilty on November 4.

No word if she will comment on her charges at today's hall meeting.

It's the fourth in a series of town hall meetings by the Oklahoma Department of Education to strengthen public education and see how to meet individual students' needs.

The event will be held at west Tulsa's Metropolitan Baptist Church at 6:30 p.m.

Future town hall meeting stops include Enid and Muskogee.
