GRANT COUNTY, W.Va. (WHSV) — A forum was held on Monday in Grant County to discuss efforts to reform education in the Mountain State.
There have been several ones like it statewide after teachers’ unions in West Virginia went on strike for two days last year.
Superintendent Doug Lambert told WHSV that the county decided to hold their own forum Monday.
Lambert also said there were seven lawmakers at the meeting and they discussed what ideas they liked and didn’t like in the bill.
“This has spurred a conversation of education in West Virginia and what we do to approve it,” Lambert said. “We’re in this business of continuous improvement and when we quit doing that, we start falling behind. We’ve got a mountain to climb, but I feel very comfortable and confident that steps are being taken to try to fix or address the challenge.”
