Consider these questions:
- Who impacts your taxes more, the president or your local board of education?
- Who impacts your property value more, the president or your local board of education?
- Who impacts what your child learns in school more, the president or your local board of Education?
- Who determines how many parties can appear on the ballot in a national election, the president or your state legislature?
Hint: “the president” isn’t the answer for any of these questions.
If you don’t know who’s running for a seat on your school board, you should. There are people out there who want to end public education or substitute religion for science. What they do will impact you whether you have kids or not.
So do a quick web search on the candidates and go vote.
