~~~

We believe in following the fact- and science-based advice of our highly-trained, hard-working public health officials to protect the health of our children and the public. But some candidates seem to favor hearsay from the rumor mill, and would ban following any public health mask or vaccine mandate, thus endangering the health and life of school children and their families.

We believe a teacher should feel free to teach a full and factual curriculum, including history through the eyes of those who lived it. A teacher should not have a political censor looking over one's shoulder. But some candidates seem prone to walk down the slippery slope of censorship, and might well ban the teaching of anything they don't like as being what Republican politicians call a "divisive concept."

We believe a teacher should be free to focus on teaching, and not take on the role of armed security. But some candidates are open to having guns in schools and having teachers carry them.

For candidates that, as seen in their public statements and posts, support one or more of the harmful policy positions noted above, we have put the word "CAUTION" next to their name in the candidates list below.
