Attending Forum On Public Schools

West Virginia legislators will spend the next several weeks educating themselves on public education, in preparation for a special session they will hold on the topic later this spring. The more facts they can gather — and the more opinions they can hear — the better.

To that end, the state Department of Education plans a series of seven public forums on schools. The first will be held next Monday in Cabell County.

One of the forums is to be held at Wheeling Park High School, in Ohio County. A date and time for the event will be announced later.

Northern Panhandle residents are to be encouraged to attend the event. It is not going too far to say that the upcoming legislative session is aimed at foundational improvements in public education.

Attending the meeting at WPHS may be your best opportunity to affect that process. We’ll keep you posted with details about the event.
