As a district we have to ensure that our curriculum challenges the minds of all of our students. Too many times in education we see students not being challenged enough and skate by with weak or relaxed curriculum. The best educational institutions in the world have the most challenging curriculum and attract the brightest minds. As a trustee, I will ensure we develop a rigorous curriculum that is thorough and challenging to ensure that we are producing the brightest minds in the world.
Over the past year, much talk has been circling about introducing political curriculum into the classrooms such as critical race theory, white supremacy, and other types of politically motivated curriculum. I do not agree with any of this sort of curriculum in our schools. I believe one of the functions of education is to teach our students how to think critically for themselves and let them decide where they lean one way or another through critical thought, judgment, and values they believe in.
