The incumbent and challenger running for the Christian County School Board in District 2 recently debated at the League of Women Voters Political Forum and hit on a number of important issues.
A topic that comes up quite often is student discipline and how to best combat behavior problems. Challenger Teresa Moss says discipline starts in the home, but that the school district is doing a good job of implementing its current policies already in place.
Incumbent Betsy Glover said she never had many discipline issues when she was teaching and believes mutual respect between faculty and students goes a long way.
Ms. Moss said she supports school choice as long as parents provide the transportation, while Ms. Glover said she would have to look hard at the issue because chose could result in the over-crowding of a particular building.
