What are we fighting for?

[en español clic aquí]

End the takeover and restore local control. 

  • The takeover is not improving student learning.
  • An elected board is accountable to local voters, a hallmark of our democracy. The Board of Managers is accountable only to Mike(s) Miles and Morath.

Strong and meaningful student achievement 

  • Inquiry-based curriculum, equitably accessed across the district
  • Fully functional libraries that support academic progress and student curiosity
  • Ending the over-reliance on high-stakes STAAR testing 

High-quality, respected teacher corps 

  • Certified teachers with college degrees
  • Autonomy in the classroom so that the differentiated needs of students are met
