Pitt County School Board To Discuss Future

The Pitt County School Board will meet Monday night to discuss the state senate bill to reduce the number of representatives on the board.

State senator Louis Pate is sponsoring the bill. In February, the Pitt County School Board voted against changing its size in a 7-5 vote.

Monday night's meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the third floor board room at the Pitt County Office Building. It is unclear if Pate will attend.

    Education is the most important thing, as well as mental health, but I do agree with taking some funds from other areas rather than ther school system so pur young children can learn and their parents don't have to worry so much about what they are being tought at school from the teachers, not the other students. Education is very important to me and my family.

    Twelve members for six year terms. There is no reason to have such a large board for a six year term. The board is going to have to move into the 21st Century with the rest of the state.

    Reduce it and the salaries. For what it cost to educate a child in this state we couold hire them all live in nannies to tutor them instead.

      NC teachers are not paid a lot, relative to those in other states.

    I can not beleive that with so many unnecessary expenditures that can be cut, schools, Juvenile Justice Services, and other essential services funding is being cut. But hey, our state government gets away with it because we as voters let them. Cut spending in Raleigh before you hurt the education system, close more juvenile facilities, and take more away from the mental health feild. Once our representatives feel it in their wallets, maybe they will be smarter about spending tax dollars.
