As a Minneapolis Public Schools parent, husband of an MPS fifth-grade teacher and educator for over 3 decades, I believe in strong public schools. I want to bring my experience and values to the Minneapolis Board of Education (District 4).
Thank you to all the students, parents and teachers who were delegates to the City Convention and to all contributors and supporters.
We're off to a strong start thanks to you!
I'm running for the School Board in District 4 because I believe:
- Our schools belong to all of us. They are built for, and must be accountable to, the communities they serve. My passion is to care for this resource for today's students and those to come.
- Support for teachers and front-line staff. Minneapolis Public Schools has talented, skilled and dedicated teachers and education professionals. I value their knowledge and experience to help guide our district and I want them to be able to use their faculties to the fullest.
- Equity is critical. We cannot ignore the racial and economic disparities in our city. Minneapolis Public Schools must engage every part of the community including students, parents, teachers and staff, the business and philanthropic communities to meet the needs of students hurt by racism and injustice, and to engage us all in addressing these issues. We’re all in this together.
