Some educators don't have a problem with the West Virginia Board of Education conducting a national search for a new schools superintendent. They just suggest viable candidates can be found within the state's borders.
Incoming Harrison County schools chief Mark Manchin says if a search firm determines that no viable candidate is available in West Virginia, then he has no problem with a search being conducted outside the state.
But Manchin and Coffman say a West Virginian would be a logical choice to run the state's school system.
Current superintendent James Phares is retiring June 30.
