School Board Elections

One of the most important offices in your state!

We are hearing from citizens they want to "DO SOMETHING!” THIS IS IT!

The time is right to win school board elections!! Parents are fired up and ready to work. OREGON PRIE has a PAC, now! We can endorse candidates and raise money for their races. 

January 2021 is the beginning of an election cycle that could change public schools, dramatically. Is this the year you will take your school board, back?

Parents are intimidated and frustrated with their elected representatives on the School Board. They testify at public meetings, and attend work sessions only to be told the schools must comply with state Standards. 

Herein lies the problem! Who, then represents parents’ concerns? Who protects children from controversial curriculums? School Board Members legally have control of school policies. Although they are often reminded at Association meetings they have the power to create and change policy, they rarely do. 

Superintendents often encourage members to comply with requests from the state Department of Education. Why? so they can look good. But wait, aren’t Superintendents hired by the school board? 

...The best strategy is to elect representatives of like-mind to school board positions. School board elections are coming up this spring. Election dates vary from state to state, but Director seats are up for election in every district. When you have a majority on your board, our role is much easier!

Have you ever attended your local board meeting?  My first thought was… who are these people? How did they get here? It can be difficult to know who to vote for when there is little information available in a non-partisan political race. Groups like the National Education Association and Planned Parenthood make it their business to elect people to these positions. They provide campaign funding and resources. Parents’ Rights In Education is committed to stopping the blatant take over of our local schools, by supporting candidates who will honor Parents’ Rights.
