Excellent article in the Deseret News by Marjorie Cortez framing the challenges school boards have faced in recent years.
We advocate for widespread community & family engagement where adults work together in courageous, compassionate, empathetic, smart, civil, and strategic ways. Engagement brings school boards, educational leaders, teachers, and families together to ensure every child who attends public schools feels safe, welcomed, represented, understood, included, and encouraged to thrive academically and socially.
“If there’s any silver lining in the kind of political turmoil that a lot of these [school] boards have sort of found themselves embroiled in, it’s maybe that they are more visible now. People are paying attention, I think, across the political spectrum to what’s going on”
-- David Doty, a founding trustee for Raise Your Hand Utah
