CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Dale Lee, the president of the West Virginia Education Association, is calling the upcoming public forums around the state to discuss education issues a “golden opportunity.”
Dr. Steve Paine announced Monday that the state Department of Education will host seven public forums in the coming weeks on education reform as the legislature will hold a special session on just education in the coming months.
“We can get advice from the true experts, the West Virginia experts,” Lee said during Wednesday’s West Virginia Board of Education (WVBOE) meeting. “The educators, the parents, the students, the community members, the board members, the administrators that are here in West Virginia, not coming from out of state interest groups.”
