I have been outspoken about Alton school issues for some time

To The Daily Sun,
I was recently called by someone who has started a write-in campaign for me to be elected to the Alton School Board. I think in light of all the recent manipulations, unethical, and perhaps illegal actions by Steve Miller and Bill Landers, and supported by votes from Sandy Wyatt and Marilyn St. Cyr, this person is so fed up they wanted to try to give the voters more choice.

I was asked, if elected, would I serve on the School Board. I agreed. I have been outspoken about school issues for some time. Some would say I am too outspoken. I say read what I have written over the years. I speak out for the children, the teachers having the right to run their own classrooms, and transparency of the School Board. I do not like lies by omission, untruths or half-truths.

I believe that parents are the rightful partners in education and should be a huge part of what goes on in the school. I like honesty and integrity at all levels. I am not a fan of one grand educational experiment after another, at the expense of the children.

I think of every taxpayer when thinking of how their money should be spent and not just the perceived wealthy lakefront taxpayers.

If you agree with my ideals, which I believe would help create a better School Board and educational system for the children, then feel free to write me in. If elected, I will try my hardest to help improve education in Alton.

Barbara Howard
