In the next few days The Tentacle will be emailing a questionnaire to the Board of Education Candidates.
If you have a question you would like to have inserted, please message or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will post the entirety of the questions and responses as provided, without editing. If a candidate chooses not to respond, we will inform you of that as well.
The Tentacle will highlight one candidate every few days, depending on who responds and how timely.
Board of Education elections are very important to how a Constitutional Republic functions. What you see happening across America right now can be blamed on/credited to public education, depending on where you fall ideologically.
What is the function of public education? Is it to raise a work force? Create public servants? Raise social awareness? Teach social justice? Open doors of possibilities through inspirational curriculum? Is it supposed to give them access to the arts, sports, music, theater, classical learning or instill a government ideology?
Is education supposed to give a student their opinions, or provide a buffet of options to choose from?
What exactly are we spending billions of dollars on to achieve?
Find out where the candidates stand by following The Tentacle.
