Next month, voters will elect school board members in 80 school districts, 40 of which have contested elections. We need your help to spread the word about where the candidates stand on important public education issues!
Candidates in contested races for school board elections were sent our School Board Candidate Q&A questionnaire, asking their positions on important education issues. You can see their answers here, and you can use your own social media pages to share the links to the responses.
Not every candidate has participated. When candidates don’t respond to our questionnaire, it sometimes means they don’t want you to know their positions on public education. But often it’s just an oversight. If candidates in your district haven’t responded, ask them to do so now. Send them the link to the questionnaire, and encourage them to respond right away. We will get their answers posted as soon as we receive them.
If you live in one of the districts with a contested election, check out where the candidates stand on public education, share the info with your neighbors, and be sure to vote on November 8!
If you don’t live in one of these districts, please share this information with public education voters in other communities. Share our Facebook and Instagram posts, and retweet our tweets.
We won’t tell you which candidates to vote for (The Parents’ Campaign does not endorse candidates – that’s up to you to decide). But we will tell you what candidates have to say about their support for public schools.
Just a few minutes of your time can make a big difference for our children and our public schools. Please get involved today. Together, we’ve got this!
