Appointed School Board
VALPARAISO | Hoping to rekindle interest in the petition drive to change the city's School Board to an elected body, organizers are taking the campaign to the Web.
VALPARAISO | Just because the Porter County Council now has to approve the Valparaiso Community Schools budget, the City Council is not ready to back the movement for an elected rather than appointed school board.
One myth consistently put forward when discussing the merits of an appointed versus elected school board is that an elected board would introduce politics into the educational process. It is not a question of politics, but more a question of accountability.
Valparaiso and Duneland officials are right to pursue plans for referendums to raise more money for the school districts, just as Crown Point has already done.
In a "forest-for-the-trees" scenario, Valparaiso Community Schools board President James Sarkisian apparently couldn't see the disgruntled mob at Monday's board meeting for all the people standing in his way.
