A walk through a school building with media coverage or reading to young children (although it’s a nice thing) does not give one any idea of what actually goes on day in and day out in a classroom, which is where the learning happens.
We also think upper-level administrators who are no longer housed in a school building should spend extended time in the same classroom getting back to not only their roots but also what education is all about.
We said all this to say we feel your best offense is to become knowledgeable about anyone seeking office that could impact education at the state or local level.
Involve your friends, neighbors and relatives because the old saying is true — “What we tolerate will be embraced.”
