On May 4, 2018, The News Journal published an article by Jessica Bies on Delaware school board elections and the DelawareCAN “Who Runs Our Schools?” campaign:
“The children of this state are too important to leave major decisions about school governance to less than 2 percent of the eligible voters,” Alleyne said. “If we believe public education is important and that the success of our children is paramount, we must do our part to vote and thoroughly vet those with control over our schools.”
To that end, DelawareCAN recently launched a campaign and website called “Who Runs Our Schools?” in an attempt to boost voter turnout. It connects voters across the state with clear, interactive information about their candidates — including survey results from candidates running in races from Wilmington to Delmar.
At www.whorunsourschools.com, community members can also learn more about the function of school boards, candidate requirements, and where to cast their ballots in the upcoming election.
