A letter from the candidate
The most important role as a school board member is to increase communication between the Board of Education and parents and other stakeholders, who have seen public education in Dayton decline to its lowest level ever. This is unacceptable – we urgently need reforms, modernization and greater fiscal control, as well as holding administrators and school officials to the highest academic standards.
What should be the priorities for the school board after 2013 to ensure that the quality of education is maintained in the current funding environment?
1) Help secure greater training for teachers, especially in adoption of new technologies;
2) Encourage greater involvement of the local communities and parents in their neighborhood schools, more time spent on reading for children and helping to do homework;
3) Increasing fiscal and operational efficiency — putting more money in the classrooms, not bureaucrats;
4) Encourage more globalized education and experiences, especially for high school students, such as learning foreign languages and cultures, to better prepare them for the workplace.
