From the Federal Government to our local Davis School Boards, our elected officials are a driving force behind nearly every aspect of the education system, including curriculum, standards, testing, and funding. Whether your children are in public school, private school, homeschool, or some other alternative, it is critical to know where your elected officials stand on local direction of education. As parents, it is then our responsibility to engage in the political process that so heavily affects education. We provide the following resources to help with both aspects of this process.
Which Offices Have the Most Impact?
