An activity involving current and former members of the Cleveland County Board of Education assisted Gardner-Webb University graduate students in a uniquely tangible way during a school board simulation recently in Shelby. Dr. Bruce Boyles, associate professor of education at GWU, teaches the Organizational Behavior Module graduate-level course, which surveys historical and contemporary issues in law and ethics in relationship to the educational setting. “One of the goals of the School of Education has been to develop meaningful opportunities for students to use simulations for assessing their readiness to assume positions of greater leadership in school districts,” Boyles shared.
