As a classroom teacher, I was disappointed to read Assemblymember Davies’ remarks about “education issues” in the DP Times

While there are many issues facing education today, the list she brings up—mask mandates, opposition to vaccines, Critical Race Theory—are not among them. 

Ms. Davies is a lazy student who has copied talking points from the toxic national argument and pasted them into our local districts. 

Ms. Davies doesn’t care about the success or security of students. Students are mentioned only in passing. Ms. Davies is really interested in power—the power to control who gets to be in school and what is taught there. 

No students or families I have spoken with are interested in this political food fight. They want sensible leadership focused on student achievement, not politicians currying favor with the people who shout the loudest and know the least.
