Maybe you've made calls. Or written letters. Or even stood outside for hours with a sign and the full power of your voice. And when Betsy DeVos was STILL confirmed as Education Secretary, maybe you felt an immediate urge to take matters into your own hands by running for your local school board.
Betsy DeVos' confirmation has sparked a nationwide movement to run for school board. Most are motivated by a strong desire to help kids in their communities. You want to be involved on the ground, making decisions that directly affect your local schools.
Even more importantly, you want to make sure DeVos' inexperience and misguided concepts about school choice don't hamper your local public schools' ability to provide a great education for all kids. The last thing you want to see is your local public schools drained of resources and public trust.
