Hosting a dialogue among parents, educators and community members focused on improving our schools and providing a quality, equitable education for each of our nearly 100,000 students.

The Champion recently published an article describing the racial tension on the school board. Specifically, the fact that there is a proposal to reduce the size of the board from nine members to seven. Walker and Cunningham see this as a ploy by Womack to squeeze Walker off the board. Womack says he just thinks they will be more efficient and save money.
Zepora made a statement I found very interesting:
“I don’t trust the people that’s going to be drawing the school board members,” Roberts said. “If we approve this, we’re doomed.”
What are your thoughts on reducing the size of the school board?
