Homeschooling

  After the student themselves, parents are the primary stakeholders in their children's education. 

 

  The role of primary and secondary education is to focus on academics, with the goal to prepare the student for a career or future education beyond high school.  Parents, who are citizens and taxpayers alike, have become concerned at the rise of distracting political agendas infiltrating their children's public education.  Many of these issues are extremely sensitive, and are best left to the purview of the student's parents. 

  I pledge as a School Board Trustee to place parental interests foremost among those considered when developing policy for the School District.

Academic Excellence

Hands Raised

  California's public education system for grade pre-K to 12 ranks 40th out of the 50 states according to U.S. New and World Report. Testing during the 2020-2021 school year revealed only 49% of California public education students met or exceeded the standard in English Language Arts, while only 34% met or exceeded the Math standard.

  Coronado Unified School District students fared slightly better, with 72% of 6th graders meeting the ELA standard, and only 46% of 6th graders meeting the Math standard.  This is unacceptable.

  CUSD needs to refocus on academics.  Politics has encroached on our schools, occupying bandwidth that belongs to our children.  As a Board Trustee, I will work to remove politics from our children's classrooms and focus on measures that will improve academic performance for all of our students.
