“Districts and States Give College students a Seat on the Boardroom Desk” prompted a response from an Schooling Subsequent reader, J.H. Snider:
To the Editor:
Concerning Districts and States Give College students a Seat on the Boardroom Desk, Caroline Hendrie overlooks the politics of the coed member of the board place. A minimum of in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, the place I dwell and the SMOB has full voting rights, it survives and thrives as a result of the varsity employees have efficient veto over the choice of the SMOB. After which, after a SMOB is chosen, they will simply intimidate the SMOB as a result of they management the SMOB’s success at school. I’d recommend that a greater method to empower college students can be to decrease the voting age to 16 for varsity board (however not different) elections. In comparison with older neighborhood members, highschool college students do certainly usually have higher data of and extra of a stake of their native public faculty system. Sadly, the place the employees unions in my district (and their state legislature champions) will struggle to the demise to maintain the SMOB place as a result of it’s their most dependable vote on the Board of Schooling, I doubt they might even carry a finger to empower college students in a manner that doesn’t facilitate their corrupt management over scholar illustration.
