BOE members in Classrooms?

An interesting suggestion comes out of Bedford County.

Each member of the Bedford County School Board ought to substitute for randomly selected teachers this year to show their appreciation for their work. From the Shelbyville Times-Gazette.

While I'm not sure it would automatically translate into appreciation for the work of teachers I do think it could certainly give them some serious insight into what's going on in the schools. That is if they're not escorted around, kept in a protective bubble and actually have the opportunity to see things from a more honest point of view.
