Which Institution Has the Greatest Potential for Healing the Nation: Corporate America? State Houses? Congress? Governors? Private Schools? Charter Schools? Non-Tax Supported Private Schools? ECOT? Public Schools Operated by Locally-Elected Boards of Education?
The answer to the question posed in the title is obvious. Unless corrupted by nefarious interest groups, boards of education (which typically represent the interests of the entire school district community, rather than outside special interest groups) in charge of local school districts are in the best position to ensure all students are educated for productive citizenship. Several wealthy individuals, such as Reed Hastings of Netflix and organizations, such as the Koch family’s Americans for Prosperity are lobbying to eliminate boards of education because they stand in the way of their privatization agenda.
Support your local board of education in ways that K-12 education can flourish and improve.
