Noting problems with GEPB, Meadows quits

Posted: Updated:

Guam - When the Guam Education Policy Board meets on Friday night, they'll be one member short, as Dr. Lee Meadows has resigned.  The child care physician says he was appointed to a policy board that has a lot of responsibility that he doesn't have the time for.

During his 20 months of service to the board, Dr. Meadows recognized a serious problem.  "You need a board of directors that is not education people that know how to manage this size of a corporation, and that's not done," he said.  

Meadows believes the board is doing a good job but feels that too many people are trying to make decisions and lead, and has not achieved what it should.  He adds the GEPB should be able to make policy that is not influenced by politics.
