The demographic distribution of the student population in the Burlington-Edison School District fails to be reflected on the B-E School Board.

The district is represented by well-established older, white males, five of them, but the student population comprises 52% males, 48% female.

It seems rather obvious that the female voice is not represented although we know with absolute certainty that each of those students has or had a mother — a female.

Furthermore, 72% of the students are white and 22% are Hispanic if I read the demographics correctly. So where is the Hispanic voice on the board?
