Go behind the ballot with us as we learn from Dr. Audrey Young who serves in District 8 on the Texas State Board of Education. She walks us through the challenges and rewards of serving in a small district of around 250 students versus the state board where she has almost 2 million constituents. We discuss the necessity of teamwork and commitment especially when these office holders serve without pay. Dr. Young details how she sees her role and the way she communicates with the people she serves. We also learn about the relationship between the Texas Education Agency and the Texas State Board of Education.
