So, how do superintendents spend their summer vacations? Well, in Tulsa, the superintendent is running an algebra camp. And, he promises it will be fun! According to the Tulsa World, Superintendent Michael Zolkoski is holding his class in a middle school cafeteria and expects lots of class participation. One student offered praise—albeit slight muted praise—for the camp: “It’s something to take up my time,” said Emily Stanton, a seventh-grader. “Otherwise, I’d probably be going on the computer or swimming. And I can do that later.”
