Forums on West Virginia education ‘betterment’ resume this week

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — There are three education forums on changes to the education system scheduled this week in West Virginia.

The state Department of Education will host the forums beginning Monday night at Robert C. Byrd High School in Clarksburg followed by a Tuesday night meeting in Ohio County at Wheeling Park High School and then Wednesday night at Berkeley Springs High School in Morgan County.

There have been five forums so far and each has drawn good crowds with varied interests. State Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steve Paine said the roundtable discussions have been a success.

Information gathered in the forums will be put into a report and forwarded to Gov. Jim Justice and leading lawmakers ahead of the resumption of the Legislature’s special session on education reform set for later this year.

Each forum this week will start at 6 p.m. and begin with a short presentation from the event’s facilitator.
