As a parent of a young child in an SFUSD public school, I urge anyone concerned about children in San Francisco's public schools to vote for Rachel Norton for Board of Education. I have had the pleasure of serving with Rachel Norton on San Francisco Unified School District's Community Advisory Committee for Special Education for almost four years. She has common sense, integrity and is one of the smartest women I know.
The school board is in dire need of someone who understands what parents of children in special education programs face every day, and that person is Rachel Norton. Rachel Norton has been a tireless advocate, volunteering countless hours helping parents who are not fluent in English navigate the complex special education system.
This experience has taught Rachel much about what SFUSD needs to do to improve the way it serves children, parents and teachers. Having Rachel Norton on the Board of Education will be beneficial not only for children with disabilities, but also for all children in the school district.
I trust Rachel Norton to listen, to closely study the issues brought before her, and to take her position as board member very seriously. She will concentrate on what is best for the children attending SFUSD schools, and has no other political aspirations and agendas to distract her from that purpose.
PLEASE VOTE FOR RACHEL NORTON FOR BOARD OF EDUCATION
