There were tense words exchanged at the Pitt County School Board Meeting Monday night over how many people should be on the board.
Pitt County Representative Brian Brown said he's planning to bring forth legislation in Raleigh that would reduce the number of board members from 12 to 9.
He said the legislation would also shorten board member's terms from six to four years.
Brown said the size of the board has led to "dysfunction" and many of his constituents are bringing the problem to his attention.
Chairman Marc Whichard responded, saying the environment has become difficult in North Carolina for education.
Whichard moved to stop discussions after he said it was losing decorum and said he looks forward to addressing it in the future.
