"Local board members play a special role in our communities. Unless they have served on a local board, I do not think people realize that being a board member is a full time job – with little or no pay. They do not get to turn off being a board member at the grocery store, the mall, or even church. They listen to the concerns of the community, their superintendents, their parents and their community at large. They then have to take those concerns and determine the best course of action for students given the resources at their disposal.” Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen L. Pruitt (pictured with Graves County Superintendent Kim Dublin) in one of his weekly blogs in December. From the Kentucky Department of Education.
