Description

Dear San Jose Unified Community Members and Parents-

As we all know, what happens, or does not happen, in our schools is refelcted in our neighborhoods. We need elected officials at all levels of local governments to be aware of the students that are falling.behind, falling through gaps, and failing completely. Latino students and Students with Disabilities continue to be the student sub groups that have the largest performance gaps, the largest numbers of students that are suspended and expelled, and the largest group of children currently in our local Juvenile Hall. Most of these children have learning needs and mental health needs that are not being met by our schools, city or county.

The goal of public education is that all Americans, despite their beginnings in life, will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to pursue the American dream and be seen as equal among their peers. The current and future health of our city can be measured by how well our local schools are doing. Are our children being prepared to enter the community civically engaged and ready to make thoughtful contributions?

Meet the People that want to represent Your Schools, Your City, Your County, Your Future

Please join us and our local candidates as we discuss their possibilities platform. If elected, how will they make our most vulnerable children their priority? How will what they do make a difference for our children?

To preview how all candiadates responded to issues about children please see: https://www.sccvoteforkids.org/
