I believe that secular values and the free exchange of ideas are important to maximize the quality of our educational system. If elected to the School Board, I will fight to keep religious institutions separate from our public institutions, and I will encourage public discourse and open debate surrounding the contentious issues that exist within the district. Ultimately, school board policy should be based on peer-reviewed, scientific research in conjunction with open and honest public discourse. Our discussions surrounding ethics, values and morality should be had in the context of a 21st century conversation, not a 1st century one.
Please watch the videos below to get an idea of my view on ethics and morality and how fair and open debate should be conducted.
