Community engagement is very important in supporting our schools. Faye's relationship with key leaders will help deliver great outcomes for the School Board when it comes to budgets, policies and more.
LIST OF ISSUES
Faye believes that our public schools need to return to the fundamentals of academics. She does not support Critical Race Theory, as she believes it diverts attention from the basics each child is entitled to – reading at grade level, writing clearly, math, science and civics. With 64 percent of tax revenue going to education, the community needs more transparency into the central office and schools.
Faye thinks it is essential for parents to become more involved in their children’s education and that it is too important to entirely outsource that responsibility to a public bureaucracy.
Early childhood education is critical to getting kids started on the right path to learning. And that starts at home by helping young children learn letters and numbers and sounding out words.
As the child grows, it’s still important for parents to remain aware of the content that schools are teaching, as many parents have discovered from the COVID lockdowns and online learning.
In addition to emphasizing early childhood education, we need safe and up-to-date facilities for students and teachers.
We need to do a better job of teaching life skills, such as the following:
Cooking for yourself
By making sure students receive proper instruction in these and other areas, graduates will be better prepared to live independently and choose a pathway to higher education or entering the workforce.
