5. I think the people in a community should have the right to elect a school board
It's undemocratic to have them appointed.
The one I work for is elected, by a slim margin of voters. The last election, only 6% of registered voters bothered to vote. But I still think they should have the right to choose their own school board.
That doesn't guarantee a functional and competent board but the people deserve a voice, don't they?
