West Virginia Board Faces Audit Response, Firing Fallout

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - At least one West Virginia Board of Education member says the need to change the public school system's culture led to the firing of its superintendent.
 
Gayle Manchin says personalities and politics played no role in her vote last week to dismiss Jorea Marple.
 
Manchin on Tuesday instead said that she wants the board to send a strong signal to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and the Legislature that it embraces the recent audit of the state education system.
 
That wide-ranging review described West Virginia's system as highly regulated and heavy with bureaucrats.
 
The board meets Wednesday to respond to the audit. It has delayed hiring a new superintendent until next week. But Manchin said she wants to revisit the job's duties before the search for a permanent successor to Marple.
