Does anybody really know what the county board of education, or even the county department of educations, does that affects our children (except for siphoning education dollars away from the classroom)? I went to the county education website and did not see anything listed there that benefits our kids (unless you are in juvenile hall). I could see a use for them decades ago when communication was difficult (no email, internet, etc.) but I no longer see a value. I would prefer those dollars went into the classroom instead of this additional layer of bureaucracy.
