I viewed the video footage from the School Board Meeting that was recorded on March 8th. This meeting was at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Administrative Center.

Finally somebody came forward and said that it was almost fifty percent of the schools are title one. This kind of concerns me. I feel as though the board members should know the county and the schools, this just shows that they do not know what they are discussing and lack of knowledge regarding topics. Especially, since many public individuals leave everything to the board
