News articles about last night's candidates forum

Didn't see any TV cameras but the print media was there to cover last night's school board candidates forum. Here's the stories as I'm finding 'em...
School board candidates fight clock - News & Record

Teachers sponsor forum for open seats - Eden Daily News

Here's a clip from the Eden Daily News story...
Panel members were asked if they believe the school board should have the authority to levy taxes. There were spirited responses.

"No," Knight said flatly. "I think it's a horrible idea. Government has too much power to tax as it is," Knight continued. He agreed with another candidate that taxes levied by the school board could strain the relationship between the school board and county commissioners.

Both stories also mentioned my opposition to No Child Left Behind.
