ALL students should be safe, protected and loved while learning the core subjects from Pre-K through HS graduation.  No indoctrination. Parents/guardians need a voice again.Physical and mental safety must increase, quality curriculum must return and students will thrive. It Is All About The Children.


How should the Board of Education address disparities in learning for students of different races and family incomes?


No gaps in educational achievement can be allowed to exist. All students deserve a safe, quality, robust education, regardless of any factor. All children should have access to key educational resources including skilled teachers & quality curriculum from well compensated teachers and teacher assistants.
