LISD School Board Candidate Boyd Goodloe Discusses Bond Elections, Education and School Board Campaign [AUDIO]
On the Thursday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, LISD School Board candidate Boyd Goodloe spoke with chad Hasty about his campaign for the At-Large Position.
Goodloe said he and his family all attended LISD schools, and feels that parents and citizens are not hearing enough about all the good happening in the district. He said that, if elected, he would like to see more public involvement from parents and citizens and keep them better informed about what's going on at LISD.
"I've gotten to walk a lot of blocks...and hear people and hear some of the concerns that they have. Sometimes, their concerns are partly because they're not hearing enough about what really is happening and going on and some of those positive things. And I think that's one of the key leadership things that the school board is responsible for and has the opportunity to take to the people of Lubbock. And I would look forward to doing that with community leaders, with local citizens, in venues where we can share the things that are happening, the things they feel challenged by and maybe they feel upset by."
Goodloe also spoke about the recent bond elections, saying that they have had a huge impact on the school,s but does not feel the need for another bond election anytime soon. He admitted that he has seen students leaving LISD, but added that some new endorsements the district will be receiving for arts, science and technology, and other areas of study have the potential to bring those students back.
Goodloe was also asked about campus carry, but did not appear to be either in favor of or against the idea. For more information on Boyd Goodloe and his campaign for the LISD School Board, visit his website at boydgoodloe.com.
