Nothing Screams “Don’t Want Teacher Input” More Than A BOE Meeting During The School Day

Union County has a school board meeting today. AN OPEN SESSION.

Notice the time the meeting was called for: 10:30.

That should be about 2nd period in my school. For some elementary or middle schoolers in a crowded school, that could be nearing first lunch.

Certainly teachers would be that time.

It is a school day.

Onslow County had one yesterday. For ACTION, DISCUSSION, and INFORMATION.

At 1 o’clock in the afternoon.

There they voted on a schedule to put kids back in schools.

Of course, no teachers could be there.

They were teaching.

So why have these meetings in the middle of a school day? Could it be to make sure that teachers could not offer comments or give input?
