Virginia county contemplating switch back to appointed school boards

The Fredericksburg paper notes here that among other local issues, one Virginia county will decide on Tuesday whether to go back to an appointed school board, instead of an elected school board: "If voters decide to change, the King George School Board would be the first in Virginia to revert to appointments since the state law was changed in 1993 to allow elected school boards, said Frank Barham, executive director of the Virginia School Boards Association. Of Virginia's 134 school boards, just 30 are appointed."
