What Sort of People Become School Governors?

All sorts of people become School Governors. Governors do not have to be a particular type of person, nor have particular qualifications, know about education or even have children. The only requirement is to be over 18. But an effective Board of Governors benefits from the various skills that different Governors bring, such as general business knowledge, budget planning, HR functions, good organization skills, plus enthusiasm and commitment to the school.
