JOIN KENDAL'S CAMPAIGN !
As our school budgets increase and funding is more available than ever before, our proficiency in subject matter is falling. We need to bring accountability to the school district and understand why we are less able today to teach reading, writing, and mathematics with the largest budget in our history.
We need to be investing in the right curriculums, teachers, and programs, while cutting the waste that is a distraction from the schools mission — educating children well.
We need to take a long hard look at what methods and materials we are utilizing because the current methods are not producing proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics for the majority of students.
In the kindergarten and first grades in particular, we need to address the methods and curriculum used to teach the foundations of reading so that children are adequately prepared for the subsequent grades and subject matter.
The curriculum needs to be transparent and accessible for parents to reinforce and teach at home themselves.
PARENTAL RIGHTS AND CHOICE
Any controversial subject matter should be transparent with easy opt-out choices for parents.
The schools should not be forcing ideology or political leanings on any student.
Parents should be able to easily access the entirety of curriculum and resources to be covered that are particularly controversial and express their opinions to including withdrawing students from participating in activities they seem inappropriate for their child.
MEDICAL PRIVACY AND FREEDOM
Medical devices such as masks and other medical treatments are a private and personal choice and should not be mandated or discussed in any classroom by a teacher or administrator with a child without the parent present.
