Excellence - Get Back to School
Full opening of schools in the fall - students can't afford to waste any more time
No relaxation of academic standards - graduation without education is pointless
All hands on deck - all available funds and resources need to be focused on bringing students back to grade level after a year of remote learning.
Keep Remote Options - for those who really need them
Keep Advanced Learning Options - students thrive with appropriate challenges
Keep Kids Safe
No excuses - Safety has to be the absolute number one priority
No Tolerance Policy - Enact policy requiring the immediate removal of vagrants from school property with private security if the City of Seattle will not act.
Send the bill - to Jenny Durkan for failing to protect children. SPS is not a police department.
Keep Calm - same discipline for same behavior, respect teachers, maintain classroom decorum
Keep Healthy - keep reasonable precautions in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, no masks for kids
Equality in Education
Maximize Equality - apply resources based on need not identity stereotypes
Minimize Disparity - don't treat kids differently because of their skin color or identity.
Maximize Equality - by maximizing freedom of movement between schools.
Minimize Disparity - by allowing funds to follow students to any school they chose. No student should be trapped in a school that doesn't meet their needs.
Maximize Success - by focusing on individual ability and responsibility
Minimize Failure - by providing support and resources to all students who need them
Maximize Freedom - no student should be subjected to political indoctrination
Maximize Unity - everyone is human, and that's what matters, not race
Minimize Division - stop focusing on race and viewing everything through a racial lens
Maximize Flexibility - keep remote learning options where practical
