BELOIT, Wisc. (WIFR)-- An open-forum style meeting hosted by the Beloit School District Board gave people the opportunity to voice concerns, and gain some answers following Superintendent Dr. Stanley Munro's resignation.

"The person should be local, they need to find somebody local that cares that has a vested interest in us,” Lana Duncan-Hartgraves, a teacher in Beloit said.

From paying severance to resigning officials, to the quality of education in the schools, many people took the podium and brought up concerns that they have.

"We cannot afford to continue in this 21st century, appeal to adults and not our children, and I am speaking right now of all children,” Dr. Jeremiah Holiday, a local pastor said.

Reports surfaced Friday that president of the board Pamela Charles will resign amidst the accusations against Superintendent Munro, that say he used his position to intimidate others.

“We're spending over 100 million dollars a year to fail our children, it's unacceptable. No matter what race to few are succeeding,” Charles said.
