Election Day is round the nook and voters have an opportunity to vary the composition of the Board of Education. I’m enthusiastic about the contemporary candidates on each the Republican and Democratic strains of the poll. New faces could assist the BOE restore its optimistic focus and be companions in enchancment.
The position of the Board of Education (BOE) is usually misunderstood, even by some of its members and candidates. The BOE is a governing physique, not a managerial board. It just isn’t a watchdog company. Unlike different metropolis boards that will perform as a test and steadiness to the elected mayor and different metropolis officers, the BOE hires the superintendent to be the chief government. She oversees the day-to-day operations of the faculty system.
