The institution of boards of education has always been criticized but in recent years the attacks have seemed to push legislation that undermines the authority of school boards.  What are the benefits of school boards and where are they less successful?  Gene Maeroff who is not only a senior fellow at Teachers College, Columbia University and a former national education correspondent for the New York Times but he is also a president on the Edison Township BOE has authored a book on the subject.  The book School Boards in America – A Flawed Exercise in Democracy explores the good, the bad and the ugly of local school governance.  Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses the role of the board member with Mr. Maeroff.
