We received some great news from Delegate Joseph Yost (R -- Giles, Radford, part of Montgomery and Pulaski), who has been a champion of providing a statewide health insurance option for Virginia school divisions, and Sarah Wilson, Director of the Virginia Department of Human Resource Management, that a sufficient number of school divisions have provided the needed data for the study of a statewide health insurance program for local school divisions, and that it is underway. It looks like we are on the way to reducing the cost of health insurance for many of Virginia's public school employees! Yost and Wilson deserve our thanks.
It's quite interesting to see what our two gubernatorial candidates are saying about public education on theirwebsites.
Finally, please join me in congratulating Brenda L. Sheridan, the 2013-2015 president of the Virginia PTA.
