Yes in my town. My husband is on the board as are many parents. The kids where I live are well educated the high school has a 99 percent graduation rate and had 35 Valedictorians last year. Considering there were only 120 kids in the class not too bad. The kid last in the class had a 3.2 GPA and was accepted at a good college. Our board does care as do the schools, teachers and most importantly parents.

Of course they do, but we need to reform the entire education system. NCLB needs to go. There is too much jumping around in the current curriculum and kids get confused and start falling behind.
