When he announced his run for county school board chair, Danny Dukes pledged to eliminate all teacher furloughs by reducing a “bloated” central office.
During Monday night’s debate at the Cherokee County Republican Party headquarters in Towne Lake, he was asked how he would do that. This year, the Cherokee County School District has proposed eight furlough days, a move that is expected to save a total of about $8.8 million during the 2012-13 school year.
Watch what Dukes had to say and how his opponent, Cherokee County Board of Education Vice Chairwoman Janet Read, responded.
