The next state legislative session starts a week from Tuesday. An issue lawmakers are expected to take up is how to respond to last year's education audit that recommended changes to how our state's children are taught.
Representatives with the American Federation of Teachers met with legislators from Monongalia, Marion and Wetzel counties Monday to voice their opinion on the audit. AFT officials say they have mixed feelings about it.
"There's going to be some things we agree. We see that we're going to have some battles on our hands. We as professional teachers say that we know what is best to run our classrooms, and treat us like professionals. We need time to do that, time to plan to do that. A lot of things that were proposed in that audit are basically what we consider takebacks or ways that could quite possibly - would not allow us to do our job most effectively," said Sam Brunette.
AFT members from seven area counties attended the roundtable.
