Former teacher vs. veteran Brunswick Co. board member

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Two seats need to be filled on the Brunswick County School Board this election.

Experience is the name of the game in the race for the District 3 seat on the Brunswick County Board of Education. Democrat William Flythe has years of education experience. He was a teacher at North Brunswick High School for 12 years. The Incumbent Republican Charles Miller has been on the school board since 2006.

Flythe said Raleigh plays a big role in creating problems for schools.

“A lot of our problems, local problems are due to the fact that we don’t have adequate funding” said Flythe.

He said these economic issues have only gotten worse since his days in the classroom.

“We changed our textbooks every five years.” Flythe said, “And do you know I retired in 2005 and the textbooks that some of the students are using particularly middle school students, are the same ones that they were using when I retired.”

For Miller, the Chief Deputy with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, safety is the most important thing. He said that in his time on the board they have made great strides in school safety. But he said these types of challenges are always evolving.

“You know. as the world changes so do we. so we need to keep up with the current trend and continue to improve that” said Miller.

Flythe said that in this election the students should come first. While Miller said his tenure in the community has well prepared him for another term.
