West Virginia Education Audit

Local - 11/27/2012 6:49 PM

West Virginia lawmakers are expecting details now that the state Board of Education has endorsed a wide-ranging audit of the state's public school system.

Board President Wade Linger is set to address a meeting of a house-senate subcommittee assigned to education issues Tuesday. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin commissioned the audit that was published in January.

The board voted last week to embrace all of it's findings. The audit noted West Virginia has one of the country's most inflexible and bureaucrat-heavy school systems.

It also cited poor rankings for student performance. Lawmakers may also ask about the board's vote to fire Jorea Marple as State Schools Superintendent.
