The School Board Project, developed by AAUW CA Public Policy team, is designed to ensure school boards throughout California include members who are committed to the maintenance of high standards of education for all students – including access to diverse and historically accurate information.
Upcoming webinar of interest on the subject:
School Boards: The Battleground for the Education Culture Wars
Feb. 7, 2024 4:00 PM, Pacific Time
Please join us Wednesday, February 7 at 4:00 PM, Pacific Time for an AAUW National Public Policy Committee webinar to learn how one AAUW state board is fighting back and what you can do locally.
Across the country, we have seen school boards, and candidates for school boards, taking up controversial policies that have led to banning books from school libraries; the censorship of curriculum in school classrooms due to individuals finding content “objectionable”; and policies leading to the prevention of safe school climates for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
If you have questions about either webinar, please reach out to Robin J. Lucas, Grassroots Advocacy Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Meghan Kissell (email@example.com), Senior Director of Policy & Member Advocacy.
