On May 13, 2018, Delaware News Online published an op-ed by DelawareCAN Executive Director Atnre Alleyne on 2018 school board elections:
We saw some good momentum going into Tuesday’s elections: major companies promoting the elections to their employees; city and county leaders helping raise awareness; and people using the #WhoRunsOurSchools hashtag on social media to encourage their friends to vote. But changing the status quo takes a sustained movement.
Tuesday was a strong reminder that Election Day cannot be an outlier experience. Instead we must connect people with their schools and school boards throughout the year, so voting next May becomes a logical extension of civic engagement; an opportunity, not an assignment.
