education is always a problem
Board of education
Did you know that in most parts of the country, school boards have broad influence not only on schools, but also on communities? They can make million tax decisions that affect property taxes. They can allocate funds for specific uses within the school and handle the hiring and firing of staff. Some policies have a direct impact on children’s future educational opportunities.
In these races you’ll hear a lot about masks, important race theories, available book lists, etc. It’s all nonsense. Finally, the biggest reminder is that parents can look at the books they’ve brought home and read them with their students. At school board meetings, I’ve seen someone come in and make a big complaint about the books being taught or go against school policy.
In fact, talk show conservatives are getting their most ardent supporters interested in nonpartisan races in ways they’ve never seen before, and nonpartisan Democrat candidates aren’t sure how to handle the pressure and are a little tepid. pretending to be. How do you respond?
The most important answer is that there must be a response. Attacks cannot be left unattended. This is the conservative right message. They claim that the only reason we don’t respond is because we don’t respond. Now I need to explain the response. The good news is that the answers are valid for other races as well as school boards.
prepare to respond
Any reactions to critical racial theories? What books are taught in your school? Are you thinking about tuition fees and masks?
First, familiarize yourself with the content. I know the teacher’s name, the books being taught, the results. Be specific about student success. Let people know that your students are doing well and your teachers are working hard. Talk about what you have achieved and the goals you have achieved. Also, talk about difficult topics you don’t want to tackle at all, such as special education, the arts, vocational education, or even sports. Yes, we grow sports. Because we love our students at every level, whether it’s sports, arts, or anything else that allows them to showcase their talents.
Talking about specific information cuts off much of what conservatives want to promote. The goal of conservative narratives is to reduce everything about education to one or two specific topics, rather than seeing it as the overall start of a young person’s life. They not only go through his one class, but multiple classes, experience new students and their experiences, try out new ideas, discuss ideas, join teams, and be part of something bigger than themselves. Become a part.
The more humanized you make the issue, the easier it will be for voters to sympathize with you, and the harder it will be for those trying to drop Strowman’s arguments against education to succeed.
