I support Republican candidate Kelli Phillips for District 4 School Board

Why are you running for this office?

The vast majority of our school board are out of touch with the views and needs of parents, so I'm running to put parents back in control of our schools. I'm for scrapping mask mandates, focusing on better grades and banning extreme politics in our classrooms such as Critical Race Theory (CRT) and discussions on topics that should be addressed at home.

Parents have been rallying against unscientific mask mandates in class that have become a huge barrier to learning - especially for children with learning needs like my son, who has a speech disorder. To see our kids unable to compete in their sports when neighboring counties were back in the field was heartbreaking.

As a proud "momma-bear" of three kids that are use our public schools, I will speak-up for the many parents who want our schools to get back to basics and focus on getting grades up for math, writing, reading and science - rather than wasting time on political issues like Critical Race Theory.

The tip of the iceberg is that across 36 of our schools, less than 10% of students are testing at grade level in Math. Of those 36, 19 schools have less than five percent of students testing at grade level. This paper reported to readers that last summer that Metro Schools saw a 6.3 percentage point drop from 25.9% in 2019 to 19.6% of students resting on track in reading. Despite the hard work of students and teachers, this cannot go on and we need change at the top with leaders prepared to focus on core subjects and vocational skills that lead well-paid and sorely needed trade jobs.
