Read this excellent explanation of what a State Board of Education Member does, published recently on the North Texas Reporter blog.
“The SBOE is NOT a salaried position! The board meets every two months and only travel expenses are reimbursed! Other than that, each board member must answer to their constituents and bear their own expenses. For the most part, they maintain their own means of income which makes the SBOE a part time job for many members.Tincy Miller maintains her own office and support staff for her own well regarded family business involved in commercial real estate. This offers her District accessibility to communication and allows Mrs. Miller the flexibility to actively pursue her responsibilities to her District and to her SBOE agenda.”North Texas Reporter, May 19, 2012
