Please Consider Running for School Board
Stop the Marxist Indoctrination of Our Children
On November 8, 2022, some 100 school board seats will be up for election in Santa Clara County. Each of the 32 school districts will have 2 to 4 seats up for election.
The Role of School Board Trustees in Representing the Community
School boards have either 5 or 7 trustees. As defined by the California School Board Association, Code 9000 Bylaws:
The Governing Board has been elected by the community to provide leadership and citizen oversight of the district. The Board shall ensure that the district is responsive to the values, beliefs, and priorities of the community.
You can review these state policies on this link.
So, if the Board of Trustees for each school district is to be responsive to the values, beliefs, and priorities of the community…are we being steamrolled by the implementation of Critical Race Theory and pornographic sex education in our schools?
Liberals have the school board races dialed in! They recruit candidates who use the election to a school board as a stepping stone to higher office. Many of them just show up to board meetings without being prepared…they only follow the dictates of the unions.
We need conservatives on our school boards to represent the values of the community!
Role of Trustees in School District Curriculum
To understand the authority a school board member has over curriculum, you first need to understand where curriculum originates:
- The California State Legislature passes a bill/law that amends the Education Code.
For example, in 2021, the Legislature passed AB101 that amends the Education Code to require a semester of Ethnic Studies for high school students graduating in the 2029-2030 school year. AB101 specifies 4 curriculum choices a school district can pursue to fulfill the requirement. Option (D) is a locally developed ethnic studies course approved by the GOVERNING BOARD (aka Board of Trustees) of the district.
You can read AB101 by going to: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/ and typing in AB101
So, if AB101 only calls for ONE SEMESTER in high school of Ethnic Studies to fulfill the law…why are schools teaching Critical Race Theory from kindergarten to twelfth grade?
- The amended Education Code is then forwarded to the California Superintendent of Public Instruction who oversees the California Department of Education.
There a FRAMEWORK is created to help school districts implement the law and text book publishers create curriculum. The FRAMEWORK adds Critical Race Theory to Ethnic Studies.
For AB101, school districts must adopt curriculum that fulfills the state law of one semester of Ethnic Studies in high school.
School districts are not required to adopt curriculum with the SUGGESTIONS in the Framework. There is no state law requiring Ethnic Studies (let alone Critical Race Theory) in Elementary School.
The Board of Trustees in two California School Districts have put an end to the teaching of Critical Race Theory in their districts!
On August 11, 2021, a majority vote by the Board of Trustees ended Critical Race Theory from being taught in Paso Robles Unified School District (San Luis Obispo)
On August 12, 2021, the Board of Trustees of Ramona Unified School District (San Diego) voted unanimously to ban the teaching of 10 concepts about race.
