Especially with Critical Race Theory and inappropriate curriculum offered in Wake schools, parents need to be aware of classroom content. Virtual learning made that clear throughout the United States, as curriculum content led the nightly news on many news stations for over a year.
Wake County is no different, as parents have protested for months against inappropriate curriculum in Wake County schools. In March, Mahaffey voted to keep pornographic material in our schools, calling the books “inspirational”. A look inside.
Transparency extends to the budget, where currently no line-item audit exists for the $2.1B WCPSS budget. Extreme malfeasance and waste led to millions in education dollars wasted. In April, WCPSS Superintendent Cathy Moore briefed that the board was “carrying-over” $220M in COVID relief funds to cover an anticipated “fiscal cliff”. Additionally, she briefed the County Commissioners that the board had exceeded their budget by $56M. No one can accurately track where each dollar has been spent. Changing Direction from WCPSS & Fiscal Cliff
I will push for policies that require schools to publish full lesson plans online weeks in advance. This will increase parental involvement and promote a more effective teacher-parent partnership.
I will also push for:
– textbooks so parents can partner with students and teachers in learning – full lesson plans published in advance
– lists of assigned books both in the classroom and school libraries
– a line-item audit, due to the County Commissioners and accessible to the public for total budget transparency
Chip in today and help give schools back to parents.
