Call yourself. The boss of the board of education are the people of Wayne County. The State board of education and the department of education sets forth standards and overall rules basically for all the counties and indepenedent school systems in the state. The majority of the decisions made are by the county. We run our own schools in wayne county. Because people arent realistically able to attend board meetings and know everything they need to know to decide on everything we elect board of education members as representatives to run our schools, and our representatives then appoint a superintendent to oversee the daily business of the schools, so basically from top to bottom it is 1. the people of wayne county, 2. the board of education members, and 3. the superintindent. If you dont like the way things are then vote for new board members. If you think the board is violating something against state policy then instead you could go straight to the state, but usually the board is careful about making sure they are in compliance with state rules and regs. If you have a specific example I could tell you more

How can they be hard up for money with all the highly paid puppets who work in the board office. Who took Jerry Workman's place? Did his son get on full time in maintenance before Jerry retired?

I agree. Most of the kids don't even go on those days, yea some do to either get caught up on their work, or just to hang out with friends, but other than that it's just a waste of gas.

Why don't the people of Wayne County request print outs of ALL of the Boards Expences. Cell Phone Bills, Auto fuel and insurance,Hotel,motel bills for training where spouses also go. Just the tip of the iceberg.

They can easily do that because it is all public information. The Office of Education Performance Standards (OEPA) can come in and audit Wayne County, if parents request it or you can let the state board of education know about it and they can request that one be done.

Why are the ols school buildings given away. They could be used for the kids. Make something simular to ymca. With all th drug abuse you would think the BOE and parents would work togather to insure a safe haven for our most precious children. I really hope you people give this some thought.

It is always the same people get on here and talk about all the wrongdoing by the board of education but no one ever pursues it.

The state coming in is not the answer yes they will clean house ,but they cut all most all spending. The kids will suffer. If we put people on the board that will do whats right and not pay poliics . Show up at the meets and know whats going on we may get change. If parent filled the board room we would get change. know you dont believe this but I ve seen it . Every time and the room is filled thats the way the vote has gone . when they gave away Wayne Elem. the first week they tabled the vote till the next meeting to explore other options. The next meeting the board room was filled with seniors no options was discussion just vote on passed 3 to 2. No parent there at all 0. If the people that get on here and complain would go to the board meeting and complain it may change . I know you dont believe me but when they see people there they see votes .

I agree with you freedom- but we have elected board members commited to change and they have ended on the wrong side of a 3-2 vote. Bring the OEPA in and make some change among the board members too.

Isn't it always that way 2 for-3 against, even after the 3 that held the majority for years, opted not to run?

Sometimes I think its not worth it too, but they do have 2 that are for the kids. And a 3-2 vote alot but we only need one more to get majority, so please think before you vote next election. I don't care about what the boe promises you for your vote just think about it and keep the kids in mind. We need to keep J. Hurley and R. Pennington.
We just need one more good one.
