The Transylvania County School Board has chosen Lisa Fletcher, a Cherokee County administrator, as superintendent. The decision helped lead to the departure of longtime Board Member Ron Kiviniemi.
Next paragraph explains it. Board didn't follow findings of that input, according to him
Not a fan of public school system. Charter school vouchers are needed for competition. While teachers demand more money, 30% of all black kids flunk the SAT. If the public schools cant perform, they need to die on the vine. A lot of money amounting to a lot of wasted time and wasted young people's lives.
Chris Wiener also said that while being a proponent of school choice, that our public schools should be our schools of first choice, not last resort.
"Kiviniemi, who was the Board’s lone Democrat, disagreed with Fletcher’s hiring, he said in an interview Thursday, citing forums the Board had held with members of the community and faculty to inform the selection process."
SOrry, I don't understand this paragraph. He disagreed with her hiring because why exactly?
