Last week, I was able to set some time aside to audit our national ally Family Policy Alliance’s School Board Academy. It was simply outstanding! I was taken back by the intense and quick moving topics presented by leading attorneys, policy advocates, think tanks, and longtime experienced school board members from across the nation. A major takeaway for me was to learn the extent of power a school board has to make hold decisions without government interference.
Model policies for parents to review instructional materials and teacher development training materials.
Comprehensive Sex Education compared to Sexual Risk Avoidance curriculum
Robert’s Rules of Order and tactics to delay the passage of bad policies
How to spot radical gender ideology, social emotional learning, and critical race theory in textbooks and unapproved ad hoc handouts.
Why and how to question and hold accountable school board attorneys who refuse to fight back against state overreach.
I am thrilled a number of new school board members from New Jersey have already completed this online training course.Now it’s even easier to complete the course and join the school board academy alumni network for further professional development and discussion forums. All 12 recorded sessions, power points, and downloadable resources are available on-demand.
If you know someone who serves on a local board of education, please forward the information on this opportunity to learn from others who have successfully navigated school board meetings and state policies for years.
