I ran for Beaufort County School Board in the fall promising that I'd work for the following:
It's been a bumpy ride. Fellow board member JoAnn Orischak and I have asked many questions and proposed ideas for change. Several board members and the interim superintendent have blocked us.
Here are some responses I received from senior staff and board leadership:
We can improve our children's education and the working environment of our teachers. Thoughtful minds gathered in numbers make the difference. Parents and teachers, please attend the board meetings and share your concerns. The board members will listen and respond. If only a few parents or teachers come forward, it's painless for the board chairman to brush aside the issue. However, if you fill the meeting room, change will happen.
Please attend the board meeting today at the Bluffton library. We need your help.
