Why We Should Make School-Board Elections More Political

Public education is one of America’s hottest political flashpoints, yet, counterintuitively, making it more political will help lower the temperature.

Public schools have declined in large part because teachers’ unions have taken advantage of the unique election system that’s used for most of the country’s school boards. Those races should be aligned with the elections that Americans know best, increasing voter knowledge, turnout, and the likelihood that winners reflect local families’ priorities.

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
