Board sets work session schedule

Thursday, January 10, 2013 — Stanly County Board of Education has called a board member session for the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. for the purposes of having a work session.

Board member Mitzie Almond expressed her concern that a meeting at 7 p.m would not allow them enough time to make it through all of the issues in the work session.

“We’re not going to have it all in one session,” Chairman Melvin Poole said.

Superintendent Dr. Terry Griffin is to make the agenda for the work session. School board members are to contact Griffin in regards to content to be added to the agenda for discussion in the work session.

During the session, the board will work on completing an updated profile of the school system.

The profile will show the facilities, staff and average daily membership within the school system.

“This will lead to the development of a new strategic plan,” Griffin said.

The new strategic plan is to be implemented by July 1 and should carry through the next 10-15 years, according to Griffin.

  • Do White Castle prices tell us anything about the minimum wage?

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
