3 favorite endorsements for this election Kristie Spenner, Principal of Woodland Heights; Dr. Boen Nutting, Public Information Officer of Iredell-Statesville Schools and recent past Principal at Mount Mourne School
1) Attract and retain quality teachers, 2) Provide the resources needed for our 20,000 students to be successful in the classroom, 3) Ensure a safe and secure environment, including mental health, counseling, nursing, and other needed services
Every student deserves access to education without fear of discrimination. Any local policy should support each and every child and their ability to feel safe and supported while attending school.
Classroom Teachers should NOT be armed. That role is for SROs and law enforcement.
