While reading the article on Allen Dyer's fight to stay on the school board I found two major questions came to mind.
Why is a high school student who is not elected by the voters of Howard County able to vote on the Board of Education? School is a time of learning, and the process of being voted in by classmates and other high school students is great learning experience. However, at 16-18 years of age, Alexis Adams does not have the maturity she will have 20, 30 or 40 years from now, which puts her at the same age of those elected by taxpayers onto the board. While her input is extremely valuable, she should not have an actual vote, as this should be considered training or an internship.
