Teachers Vote Among 13 to Join Maryland Education Board

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Public and private school teachers can now start voting on their choice to represent their interests on the Maryland State Board of Education.

News outlets report that voting began Sunday to choose an active school teacher from among 13 teacher candidates to fill a board seat. A bill approved during this past legislative session directed the teacher election. Voting ends Nov. 17, with the results to be released Dec. 23. The winner will serve 2½ years on the board.

Maryland State Education Association President Cheryl Bost says it'll be good to have an active practitioner of teaching on the board to provide a voice for the profession. Teachers with active certificates are getting emails with candidate biographies.

Another new board seat will be filled by a parent.
