Many of us woke up years ago when we discovered the liberal left pushing the propagandized Common Core curriculum and testing system.
Along with federally mandated data collection following every child from nearly cradle to adulthood, we understood the power of federal education control.
We worked locally and in Tallahassee to curtail the onslaught, but it was an uphill battle.

The old progressives who promoted Common Core are back on the scene locally advising new candidates. It sets off alarms, as do the dirty tricks pulled by nefarious supporters.
They know that controlling the money and systems means molding generations to come.

Who you vote for at the local school board level is where you can truly make a difference. This isn’t child’s play. School board members oversee the management of millions of taxpayer dollars, thousands of employees and the teaching and shaping of thousands of children.

Although school board races are politically unaffiliated, the party registration of candidates is public information.

Character and credentials also matter. Youthful exuberance is great but trumped by education and experience.
Overseeing the management of this large operation and withstanding the political and social pressures takes talent, strength and understanding.

From a policy standpoint: Do they support school choice and charters? Would they organize a citizen advisory board to review textbooks and curriculum including the content of on-line programs? Would they push for more transparency and accountability of the superintendent?

I’ve been surprised by the level of smears, lies and innuendos during this campaign season. It tells us just what is at stake. Choose wisely.

For me, the best candidates for Indian River County School Board are Eugene Wolff, Jackie Rosario, and Teri Barenborg.
