  Board of education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A board of education or a school board or school committee is the title of the board of directors of a local school district.
Boards of education are usually elected by residents of the school district but may also be appointed by mayors or other executives of jurisdictions such as cities or counties whose jurisdictions may be coextensive with that of the school district.
Particularly in rural areas, the board of education of a county-wide school district may be the area's largest employer and thus the board may be subject to political considerations that may be lessened or lacking in other circumstances.
