Melanie’s Statement on why she is running

I’m running for the state school board because I am passionate about parental rights and ensuring a great future for our children. Like many parents, I’m concerned about the decline in academic instruction in our public schools. We have allowed too many extreme and controversial theories and practices to infiltrate our curriculum. We require too much of our teachers and ask them to take on roles that should be reserved for parents. As your School Board Member, I will be that first line of defense of what we allow into our education system, and I will fight for our children’s future to ensure they can chase their dreams and accomplish their next step.
