At one point in time we all had problems when it came to homework.

Back in 1982, Nathan Hale student Eva Chambers, along with other Tulsa Public School students, got to call into a Homework Hotline. Unfortunately the phone number wasn't 867-5309.

Three TPS teachers were on the other end waiting to help anyone who called looking for help.

At the time, it cost the district $8,000 a year to run the hotline. Today, if you need homework help,  you can contact any Tulsa City-County Library for any homework help. Also, there are other states, like Tennessee, with their own Homework Hotline.
