Last week, I covered my first Marion County Board of Education meeting since December. Since then, I have written stories about activities and individuals in the school system.
But going to meetings is always a little different.
Normally, meetings are fairly routine, and in general, members of the public only come to meetings when they have a specific issue in mind.
Last week’s meeting was unusual for me. The room was relatively crowded, with 30 to 40 people in attendance by my own estimate.
