Guam - The Education Committee will accept public testimony tomorrow night on a bill that would change the makeup of the Guam Education Policy Board. Instead of being elected, Bill 424 seeks to make the board members appointed by the governor and approved by the Legislature.
The legislation aims to give the board more authority over the operations of the school system. Board Chair Ron Ayuyu says he doesn't think the bill is necessary as an appointed board didn't work in the past, saying, "To me it doesn't matter to me, who you put in there, even if it's a pointed by the governor. It's just being a board member. It's just creating accountability within the department."
The public hearing will be held at the Legislative Public Hearing Room at 6pm tomorrow.
