KUOW-WEEKDAY-Steve Scher, with audio:
There are four Seattle School Board positions up for election, but none are reserved for a student–age member. Some teenagers believe a student should have a permanent seat at the table to help align school board policy with the desires of the student body. Is this a good idea? Are you a student? What do you think is right or wrong with public schools? Parents, what desires did you have for your school as a student? Does that jive with what you want for your kids? A panel of students join us with their take on our educational system.
