RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Board of Education's leader is embarking on a listening tour to hear about important issues facing the state's public schools.
Board President Christian Braunlich will travel to Bristol on Monday on the first stop of the tour.
There will be eight stops throughout the state. 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.
