Public comment periods of most local government meetings are often controlled by those who complain, insult or sometimes threaten.

On Tuesday, however, those who appeared for the public comment period for the Floyd County Board of Trustees at the first regular meeting of September came with praise for the board’s efforts to help hire more teachers that reduced class sizes at elementary schools in the county.

While there were some comments about timing and delays, the tone overall was praise and thanks from parents of children affected, one young student and a school teacher who is also an official in the local education association.

Along with the praise came suggestions that working together can achieve more positive results in the future.
