      So many attempts to reform public education and each time no real dialogue with the most importation stakeholder! Students! Not much money involved. Board members don’t get paid. Also I doubt very much the student would be allowed in executive session.


  2. This non-voting member will give a student voice to the State Board of Education. I sincerely hope this student will reach out to other districts and charters so the State Board doesn’t just get the voice of one school.
