Overwhelming testimony ahead of Thursday's BOE meeting supports students’ delayed return to campus

James Sunday, Radford High School principal, submitted testimony to the BOE that said, “Although we are expected to be ‘good soldiers’ who follow directives, we can not in good conscience move forward without expressing the concerns we continue to have in regards to reopening our schools.
