Update: Pennsylvania school board reinstates IB program

You may remember a posting from March 21st (scroll down to "Why council members and their votes matter") that commented on the importance of school boards and the votes of their individual members. The case in point: a school board in Pennsylvania that had voted -- much to the community's dismay -- to eliminate the district's International Baccalaureate (IB) program.

After nearly two months of community protest and litigation, the Upper St. Clair school board voted on April 24th to reverse its decision -- a vote heralded by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as a good move for students and families in the district.

Wisdom prevails....thankfully.
