Open Our Schools Campaign

Parents want the option of 5-days-a-week in-person learning for their children. The science is clear that it is safe for students to return to the classrooms after a year of remote learning. Teacher unions and radical politicians have ignored parent requests for years, and it’s past time for parents across the county to be heard.

School Choice​

Competition breeds excellence, but teacher unions are determined to protect the government education system’s status quo. It is essential to give parents a choice to determine the best learning environment for their child. This choice is achieved by ensuring that the funding follows the students, whether they attend private school, homeschool, charter schools, or public schools. BEST will continue to work state by state to introduce Education Savings Accounts, Tax Credit Scholarships, and voucher programs. Over the years, we’ve seen parents and students around the country forced into underperforming school districts with no room for alternatives. Each student brings unique capabilities and learning styles into the classroom, and the current one-size-fits-all approach leaves them underserved. We must protect and promote school choice to provide students with greater opportunities.

Anti-American Content

Critical Race Theory, The 1619 project, and Common Core standards have paved the way for biased, anti-American, subjective curricula. With a decline in students’ reading on grade level and increased high school dropout rates, it is more important than ever to get back to teaching the basics and spend less time socially engineering children with vicious, destructive propaganda. We must counter the anti-America narrative by regaining local control of the curriculum through parent involvement, legislative action, transparent textbook and content adoption, and the election of high-quality school board members, district by district.

Candidates

Parents have been ignored long enough. To transform local school systems across the country, we must identify and elect like-minded board members. It is all our responsibility to elect individuals who have our children’s best interests at heart. BEST is actively engaged in recruiting, training, and educating the community about local school board candidates who understand that parents are the final authority in their children’s education.
