I see all the posts bashing different candidates and I see all the posts recommending this one or that one for the upcoming BOE race. From what I read in the paper there are 3 seats to be filled. I am relatively new to this area and find myself very curious about the town and the cry for change by some. I don't have a child in school yet but will very soon so I find myself asking this question --

Does the Wayne County Board of Education really need change and if so - why? Traveling about I see lots of county cars on the road so apparently they are out working. Lots of cars on the county lot when I drive through town. I've read articles in the town paper and they are complimentary of the system so my question is this ..

Why is change needed? And if change is really needed - how does one know who to vote for? Any recommendations out there?

THE NEWS PAPER IS IN WITH THE BOE. THATS WHY IN THE IN THE PAPER ON FRIDAY IT WAS DOWN PLAYED ABOUT THE INCIDENT ON EARLY VOTING. IT DID NOT SAY THAT IT WAS A BOE DIRECTOR HELPING SOMEONE VOTE. MY QUESTION IS WHY SHE IS TAKRING PEOPLE TO VOTE IN THE COUNTY AND ON COUNTY TIME. AS FOR THE NEWS PAPER WHY HAVE THEY NOT PRINTED THE WHAT BOE EMPLOYEES WERE PAID LAST YEAR ALWAYS BEFORE IT CAME OUT IN FEB.THEY HAVE IT JUST ELECT NOT TO PUT IT OUT RIGHT NOW.

The Wayne County News and Jim Booten sugar coated what happened at the court house on Wednesday that tells me Jim Booten needs to be replaced too! He did not tell the complete truth. He did not tell that it was Sandy Pertee a BOE Director who was helping two ladies vote, he said just two people were using the voting machines and one was helping the other to vote "HE LEFT OUT THE THIRD PERSON HELPING THE TWO VOTING AND IT WAS SANDY PERTEE. How many other times has she done this? She was on county time in the county car, I want to know if she drove them there too? Is Jim Booten afraid to tell the truth because of SPs votes in Crum.

Jim Booten will not tell you the truth because Sandy Pertee is taking care of Jim daughter Kim Pauley at Spring Valley High School. Ask the teacher's at Spring Valley about what Kim does and how all the extra perks that pay money she gets. Kim gets all the extra money in the county. So Jim will never go against Sandy Pertee because of this not her votes in Crum because they kick her out and send her to Fort Gay.

Change is needed. The secret meetings they have had endorsing Darik Adkins and Katie Carey is a farce. They are lap dogs....nice wags(movie joke there if you get it). You should also ask why Steve Queen has been sending Jimmy Scott to Meet the Candidates to do the MC work...sounds like they are trying to controll it all...and why does the Superindent show up at most events. he should stay removed from it. Beware of the election I recall that last time one precenct was late and Quenn went from losing to winning...wonder if this will be a repeat.

Honestly...who really cares? The "Meet the Candidates" meetings are a joke anyway. What...haven't been to one? Well join the club. The same people show up at every meeting. It's a complete waste of time. Everyone votes for who they know/like/are related to. It's not that complicated. Oh and I've been in this county a LONG time...it's political. Get over it. Not gonna change.

POLITICS hahaha well heres a good one Politics shouldnt be any part of BOE whichs mean Board Of Education....EDUCATION PEOPLE!!! not State Senate or Govener nor President.. Basically BOE should be bout Educating the Kids that need everything they can collect in thier mind to be able to make it out in the sorry ass world now days.. trust me i wish i could go back to when i was in grade school i would deff stick my head in the books if only the children knew what its really like out here.. especially when they are not or never be prepared for it.... Its bout the children and getting them to stay in school and drive them to thier full potential with out discouarging them or push them away to where they fell left out... i member bout between 5 and 10 years ago it was called no child left behind in everyschool in the State of WV... Trust me wish they would actually would of applied it in certian counties where teachers actually cared to teach a student something..... So thier should not be any politics in any part of education period!!!!!

so basically this state should go threw and basically wipe out all the politics out of the school system period, cause schooling is no part of that mess period i can see appionting someone that actually cares for thier county and the children in it and actually have good ideals and no out to flash thier money around cause anymore its all bout the money... need someone to stand a firm ground and say this is what the children need and lets apply it.. i dont mean some crazy ass test to see what they know after learning some what of what the teacher taught them over the 10 or 11 months they are in school which i've noticed a problem in Wayne Co everytime it snows or the water rises you cancle school, sorry but when i attended grade school and High school we went unless it was a natural disastor which is mass flood, or simply mass water line busted or electric is off threw out the hole County...we went no matter how cold it was out side or how much snow we had unless it was to where everything was at a stand still, our bus drive threw his chains on and we went to school... trust me Wayne Co BOE needs to go back to actually appling school back the way it use to be, its go or else..But one main thing that should apply in schools in the State of WV should be more actually physicall activities to where the children actually physically burn thier breakfest and lunch off..i member when i was in grade school we actually done activities out side no matter how hot or cold, rain or snow out side, we turned out alright im pretty well fit to this day an most the people i went to school with was, other than the few that were in herited by blood that we over sized... shoot i member actually doing State and Capitals once everyone got them all right we all went out to play kick ball which was our favorite especially in snow lol!! but hey Education should be applied with fun and enjoyment, not keep you children in the class room year round no wonder why the drop rates are out ragious by the time they hit 16 which should be against the make their own decsion to drop out they're not 18.. a child in WV should attend school till they reach thier hand out to recieve thier deploma, my parents made me go to school or else they wasnt raising me for nothing aleast prove to them i accomplishing something in my life... So parents, BOE Start actually teaching and appling fun things for the students to keep them going so they can reach thier goal... ive said to many cant's in my life weither all this matters but get the Politics outta the school system right away or you children will never achieve anything by money getting them threw school or anything they have to do it on thier on just strive them to exceed everything possible they can...
