Perhaps the school board needs a student perspective rather than a teacher.

Not in Tupelo, unfortunately. Board members are appointed by the mayor with approval of the city council. We peon citizens never get a say in the matter, beyond our votes for mayor and council.

In Lee County, however, you do get to vote on the board members.

Professional students never had to make it in the real world. Teachers should be required to be successful for 20 years in the private sector before being able to teach.

That is why you are a peon you never stand up at the council meeting and demand your input that you are paying taxes for.
It is the citizens responsibility to be involved in government not just vote.
