Editors: Solution for school board turmoil is better candidates

In an editorial this week, the Express-News begs for “effective leaders on local school boards.” “Strong candidates needed on fall ballot”, San Antonio Express-News, July 24, 2012.

Who serves on a school board, their credentials and reasons for wanting to serve should be of interest to every voter. San Antonio has many well-run school districts with hardworking boards. Unfortunately, it’s the relatively small number of dysfunctional districts and boards that tend to grab the headlines.

The editors note that the filing period runs through August 20 for the election in November.
