Reflecting Upon Her Experience

Boardman is one of the pilot school districts leading a grassroots initiative to provide Ohio’s citizens with a stronger voice in shaping statewide education policy.  Last week, one of those citizens, Lynda Beichner, testified at the public hearings regarding amendments to EdChoice legislation.  When asked to reflect upon her experience, she shared the following insight: “For me personally, it felt good to be able to participate in the process.  As a parent, I can’t imagine my testimony had much impact in Columbus, but I do think it sent a message in Boardman – people seeing this as a topic worthy of attention.  I also think it went a long way to show our staff that we as parents support them and understand a little bit of their frustration.”
