Although the results are not yet official, it looks like education reform is here to stay in Douglas County. After a highly contested race that captured the nation’s attention, the four pro-reform candidates were victorious. This isn’t just a victory for those four candidates, it is a victory for parents and students who will undoubtedly benefit from the positive changes the Board of Education has and will continue to put forth.
I have written a lot about the amazing things happening in the Douglas County School District, but you may have noticed that during this contentious school board race I haven't written much. I have been covering the race for RevealingPolitics.com, so you can check out my writing there.
But, tomorrow is a big day - Election Day! We will see if people believe in the successful reforms of the current BoE in Douglas County that have made it the most interesting school district in the country, or if they've bought into the false narrative of the union-endorsed candidates that the reforms aren't working.
