I have thought about this and had constituents suggest that School Board Elections be partisan. There are a few benefits that I see that would help improve school board elections
1. There would a better vetting process to properly prepare and educate candidates on issues
2. Voters would have better access to candidates policy positions
3. Candidates would have freedom of speech in expressing their political views
4. Level playing field for candidates of varying political view points
What do you think about this idea? Are there other strengths and weaknesses to this idea?
