Elementary school principal Deidre Prevett, from Muscogee (Creek) Nation, is descended from a long line of teachers. In struggling East Tulsa, OK, she’s made it her mission to help transient families of many different ethnic and national backgrounds find a pathway to real freedom. “To live up to America’s promise,” she warns, “we need to care about everyone’s children, not just our own.”
