Testimony of Norm Wooten to the House Finance Subcommittee on Education & Early Development
– January 25, 2017
Thank you for the opportunity to testify this morning. School boards are constantly reminded by legislators that “We cannot continue to do business the same way,” or “We need to become more efficient.” I’m here this morning to assure you that school boards have heard your message and taken it to heart.
Across the state innovations and efficiencies are occurring. However, one of our shortcomings is that we are not always good at sharing those stories with you. I want to share some of those stories with you this morning so you have a sense of the good things happening in our schools for our students across the state. (See full testimony here)
