Election 2022-Education West Virginia

Dale Lee, president of West Virginia Education Association, speaks with other state education leaders against proposed Amendment 4 at a press conference at the West Virginia state Capitol on Sept. 27, 2022, in Charleston, W.Va. Voters in West Virginia will get the final say on a ballot question that would amend the state constitution to give the Republican-dominated legislature control over virtually every aspect of public schooling.

CHARLESTON — Voters in West Virginia will get the final say on four proposed constitutional amendments, including one that would give the Republican-dominated legislature control over virtually every aspect of public schooling.

Amendment 4 on Tuesday's ballot would require the state Board of Education to submit new rules and regulations to the legislature annually for final approval. Currently, it's the only government agency that's exempt.
