Bedford CountyRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ The Virginia Board of Education’s leader is continuing a listening tour to hear about important issues facing the state’s public schools. Board President Christian Braunlich will travel to Bedford on Monday and Tuesday for the second stop of the tour. Braunlich kicked off the first of eight stops on the tour in Bristol last month. Officials say the tour is designed to give parents, teachers, local school board members and others an opportunity to express their views on public education. There will be a special focus on changes in the Standards of Learning assessment system.
