Why would one candidate want to run for school board when his kids have all been attending a private school. They may go to high school in Wilmington, but if he is so concerned about the public schools he should have had them in public school all along.

You don't have to have children in the schools to run for school board. You don't even have to be a parent.

IF the candidate has their children in private school, maybe they feel there is something wrong with the public school and they want to be on the board to fix the problems for ALL children.

Just a thought ...

All I can say is bring in the new guys and get the robots out. We need independent thinkers on the board. Want to cut costs? Mr. Plese should begin with lowering his salary and cutting his financial wizards. In other districts the superintendents know how to handle a budget. He cuts teachers our kids need while someone else does his job as his wallet fattens.

Have to agree with the person who started the thread, and my vote will reflect that. So get out there and vote!

A lot of people on boards are not personally involved but feel there needs to be change. That's why they run. They think they can improve on the system and laying off teachers is one way to cut a budget but trimming all the other costs in the budget is another

It is all about the money. How much do the board members get paid for doing nothing?
I see money

If they get paid it is too much.

School board commissioners as well as park board commissioners do NOT get paid. So if you think it was about the money....think again
