Tafari K Anderson
Candidate for the Clifton Board of Education
To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Tafari Anderson and I am running for Clifton Board of Education. My wife and I are dedicated residents and taxpayers of our wonderful city of Clifton but more importantly concerned parents with children in our school system. As a parent I have seen a decline in parent-teacher relationships, closed communications between teachers and administration. These things only spell disaster for the guidance and educational experience of our children. Open dialogue needs to occur between parents, teachers, administration and especially the student. My reason for running for the Board of Education was based on several personal experiences with our children and while talking with many other parents, my wife and I realized that many parents and grandparents were having similar experiences and complaints but very few were willing to take on the challenge that plagued us with our current administration not being able to relate to the issues at hand.
Once elected to the Board of Education, I will reevaluate the curriculum to ensure our children are at the cutting edge of technology to inculcate Information Technology and Computer Programming early-on and to implement electronic books to offset district expenses. As a parent with children on the ASD Autism Spectrum Disorder, advocating4change in special education has become a lifelong fight and with the changes in DSM5 www.dsm5.org you need someone like me at your side. I will remain focused to work with my colleagues to make CHANGES to create a STRUCTURE in our education system that will provide PROGRESS for a more stable future. I promise to be the voice for parents and the advocate for our children to enforce the laws that all children are entitled to a free and appropriate education under my watchful eyes. We will work together by providing open dialogue between the Board of Education and Parents to remove the gag-order from the mouths of our educators providing an Authentic Partnership between home and school. Change is never ending and with really good, old-fashioned common sense approach I have good progressive ideas that will better our school district budget and help to keep taxes down while maximizing our current resources.
I am a candidate that will work for the betterment of all children. I have no strings attached and owe no favor which makes this campaign even more challenging to accomplish. So, as I plead to you, there are many ways that you can show support for efforts to make our educational system in Clifton better. Supporters can volunteer their time, helping to distribute flyers and brochures, spread the good news the way it was once done by talking to your families and friends to vote for me, Tafari Anderson, on November 6th, door-to-door canvassing, ordering and placement of lawn signs or hosting an event. Another way you can help is by donating to the cause; in person or online at www.tafarianderson.com.
