“My opponent is endorsing the continuation and expansion of a failed testing model, a teacher evaluation tool that overburdens our teachers and overemphasizes test scores, a broken relationship with the governor and General Assembly, and a top-down approach to educational decision making,” Woods said.
Woods also called on Wilson not to hire Barge as a consultant, contractor or employee if she wins.
Barge and Woods have a history. Barge defeated Woods in the 2010 Republican Party primary for superintendent.
The election is Nov. 4.
