2017 East Ramapo School Board Candidate Questionnaire
The Role of School Boards:

Public schools are not islands. They operate within communities of families, businesses, services, and individuals who all share an interest in the preparation of their younger citizens. Schools that have the support of their stakeholders have a powerful advantage in carrying out their mission.

Historically, school boards have been formed to keep the “public” in public education. They are uniquely American and provide the conduit that delivers the community’s values and will into its schools.

Education is not a line item on the school board’s agenda—it is the only item. School boards incorporate their community’s view of what students should know and be able to do. School boards are accessible to the public and accountable for the performance of their schools. School boards ensure that students get the best education for the tax dollars spent.
