Why are public school systems often run by school board members with no education training?
plaid pages....Every School District, in every State, City,County.......all have their own specific by-laws and policies. To my knowledge, the "typical" School Board should be and usually IS comprised of a diversified group of individuals, to include, community members, professional people, parents, retired men & women, from all backgrounds and walks of life. Certain qualifications exist for someone to "apply" to become a member and in most cases, they actually "run" for this position and are VOTED in by tax-payers of their particular district.
I'm not sure what "educational training" you are referring to, but they must all learn the specific modus operandus of their School Board, comply with all rules, remain active with meetings & various programss, etc..........Their own personal educational background is of little significance.
