Wood County Board of Education
Once again the BOE is coming under fire, and it's no wonder. First, there is the Stadium Field fiasco. But, while that is making the headlines and everyone's attention is drawn to it, there are bigger issues being ignored. On January 28 the Board of Education will be voting to reduce teaching staff in the schools. Once again, elementary schools will take the brunt of it. To classroom teachers and reading interventionists are being cut. This means that the people who work DIRECTLY with and for the children will once again be on the chopping block. Elementary school is the foundation of the educational process. Once again, thee children will suffer. What is more important..the education of our children or a football stadium?? Voters beware. Board meeting is Tuesday, January 28.
