Candidate declined to answer.

How do you propose that more funding be allocated to public education?

Parents are frustrated with the performance of public schools, its apparent nonresponsiveness to the community, and its current poor performance with student outcomes. What are your thoughts on how we can support public education and change this situation?

 

Candidate declined to answer.

How would you propose changing the current funding formula to make it more equitable for children from poverty, English Language Learners and special education students?

Comprehensive, age and developmentally appropriate, medically-accurate, inclusive sex education has been proven to improve students’ long-term health outcomes, yet it is not required that students be provided with this information in their sex-ed programs. Do you believe that public school sex-ed programs should be comprehensive, medically accurate, and inclusive?

 

Candidate declined to answer.

Do you support ending the use of pepper spray on students by the school district police? Yes or No, and why?

 

Candidate declined to answer.

Post Covid we have many students who have not been able to catch up in their learning. It is particularly alarming that the younger students, who did not acquire reading skills during remote learning, are very far behind in reading proficiency. At the other end, we have seen a drop in Nevada’s high school graduation rates, with minorities, special ed, and ELLs now suffering a significant graduation gap. How do we address the needs of the Covid generation?

Candidate declined to answer.

What is your position on legislation such as Don’t Say Gay, and forcing transgender children to use bathrooms of their birth sex?

Candidate declined to answer.

What is your position on restorative justice?

Candidate declined to answer.
