We asked each candidate running for the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education the same five questions:

QUESTION #1: Why are you running for office?

QUESTION #2: What 3 things do you hope to get done during your term should you be elected?

QUESTION #3: Are our schools safe, and what can you do to make them safer?

QUESTION #4: How can you make sure schools in less affluent parts of the state are just as good as others?

QUESTION #5: What else would you like to add that we didn’t ask?
