    It is no secret how important this fall election is here in Beaufort County. School board members across the country are getting unseated due to allowing wokeness curriculums into our schools by not standing up. Students are being redirected to a more social agenda in education instead of focusing on the basic subjects of reading, writing, math, and English. As a result, student growth and grade performance have plummeted nationwide, and here in Beaufort County Schools as well.

    Only 28% of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the public education system according to a recent Gallup poll. Many parents are totally dis-satisfied and pulled their children out of public schools opting for private education and home schooling. This is some very disturbing news but based on trends and recent events, I can understand where Americans are coming from.

    If elected this November 8th, I stand on the goals I previously mentioned during my campaign:

  • 1. Improve student academics in all subjects by making sure appropriate curriculum for learning are in place. We need to get the school system back to educating our children in the basics.
  • 2. Ensure school dollars are spent wisely.
  • 3. Stop social engineering and sexual exploitation in our schools.
  • In addition, I have established new goals for the fall campaign to address critical issues:
  • 4. Ensure our schools are safe.
  •     a. Conduct a review of current protocols, policies, and other
  • safety measures.
  •     b. Propose having two resource or security personnel for each school or at schools with greater risk factors. Monies are available and we should do this for student, teacher and staff safety. West Carteret High School in Carteret County is already conducting single shooter training. I would like to see more preventative safety measures in Beaufort County Schools.
  •     If we have money for billboard signs and waste money on curriculums that don’t work, we should be able to step up school safety. In addition, there are discretionary monies.
  • 5. Parent rights: Ensure parents have a say-so in what their children are being taught.
  • 6. Teacher and principal incentive merit raises when student growth and grade progress is evident.
  • 7. Prayer in school: I will be promoting implementation of prayer and/or the moment of silence in our schools.
  • 8. Restore public confidence in our schools. This requires change in School Board leadership.

    I don't hesitate to say that we need to replace School Board members who fail to take a stand to get these things done.

    Finally, I will fight for our students, schools and families and appreciate your support in the general election on November 8th
