One Problem Fixed

Congratulations to the Davie County Board of Education for reaching a decision last week to expand the Early College facility. Interim superintendent Bill Steed is having a beneficial, healing influence on the board. Now in its fourth year, the Early College is still operating in a crowded, temporary home. For its own reasons, the board refused to fix the Early College until it could reach a decision on the high school, a quandary that has dragged on for a decade. It was time to free the Early College hostages.
Steed will only be with the board until July. He has good sense. The school system has desperately needed clear, steady guidance.
It’s amazing what the board can do with the right helmsman.
