For about three years, I've been trying to have a voice in the education of my children at the state level.  My pleas continually fall on deaf ears because the state board does not feel accountable to the voters.  Please vote yes on HB228 so that State board candidates can be vetted using the caucus system and be held accountable to the people.

I know there are some saying that education should not be political but as long as there is public money funding education it is political and the political ideologies of the state board often influence their decisions.

Let's make sure the board is properly transparent and accountable to the people.
