LIVE: School Board Talks Budget, TFA

Watch the Cobb County Board of Education also tackle the Harrison ninth-grade center and reapportionment and start a conversation.

Note: The video feed will work only while the meeting is running. It will not pick up the archived video after the meeting.

The Cobb County Board of Education is holding its monthly work session this morning at 8:30 at the on Glover Street, and we can't remember an .

In the past that would have meant two words for Cobb County Patches: "live blog."

But while we've had lots of people watching those live blogs, we haven't gotten much conversation. So we're trying something different today.

You can watch the live stream of the school board's meeting right here, on your favorite Patch site. And you can comment right away on what you're seeing and hearing.

So whether you're fired up over teacher furloughs, teacher attritiion, bigger classes, Teach for America, renovations, new electoral districts, old calendar concerns or new SPLOST construction, or you just hear something that sparks a reaction, you can respond and start or continue a conversation.

Just post your thoughts in the comment area below.

There are 11 speakers for the public-comment period this morning. That's huge for an 8:30 a.m. work session. Three is usually a lot.

I think we can safely say that the Harrison community is fighting mad about the ninth-grade center.

Harrison needs the 9th grade center-sad that the High school got caught up in the politics of the board!

I've been impressed with the quality of the discussion on Teach for America. There has been a good mix of personal experience, theory and practicality and not much politicking or showboating.
