Yet no mention of the abysmal state achievement test scores. Along with the disasterous low amount of graduates attending college, I guess they really don't matter. Much easier for the Board to focus on meaningless bread and circuses issues to please the sheeple. And the Board supports Issue 2. You have to wonder who exactly they are working for, their constituents or the Teachers Union.

We have situations where a kindergarten teacher at Roxboro earns the equivalent of  $130K in a standard 2080 hour work year,  excluding benefits.  And a full pension after 30 years that pays 66% of salary with lifetime benefits. The school board should support the best interests of the students and the community by seeking a fair and affordable cost structure.

The School Board should resign in disgrace. The School Board apparently is the puppet of the Teachers Union rather than looking out for the interests of their taxpaying constituents. Anyone who votes for the school levy should have their heads examined.
