Valley School, Government, & Business Leaders Discuss Education
School leaders from three Shenandoah Valley districts got together Wednesday morning to talk about some big issues in education.
The superintendents of Augusta County, Staunton, and Waynesboro schools, as well as the director of Ridgeview Christian School, answered questions on a panel Wednesday.
It was a breakfast event hosted by the Augusta County Chamber of Commerce. The Shenandoah Valley Governor's School hosted the forum.
"It sort of inspires collaboration. I think it's important to understand each perspective. Education is a big part of helping students be prepared to be productive members of our workforce,” Said LeeAnn Whitesell, Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School director.
Standards of Learning tests and the use of smartphones in school were among the topics school leaders discussed.
Business and government leaders were also on hand for the discussion.
