Oberg, 45, who formerly directed Blue Ridge UniServe — an organization that aims to support local education associations — made the announcement Tuesday atClaudius Crozet Park.
“If I’m elected, I will do the absolute best I can to represent the needs of our county, the needs of our kids and the needs of our teachers,” Oberg said. “I’ve worked pretty much my entire life on public education, and if elected I promise you I will be tireless.”
Topping Oberg’s list of key issues is the role high-stakes standardized testing plays in public schools.
That there were so many there yesterday in support was impressive. The pizza provided didn’t hurt. 🙂
