School Boards in the Big Apple

January 5, 2003

See where the state of New York is looking intowhether or not city school boards are really necessaryand whether or not they're doing a good job hiringdistrict superintendents. Some local wags think thatNew Yorks "got it right".

James Schoolmaster, Dearborn School Board member responds...

"City school boards are only necessary if you believe in local control of school districts. I also question an individuals belief in democracy if they are willing to give up control of their schools."
