Over the past few weeks, I've spoken with hundreds of neighbors about our choices for who will serve next as our Ward 5 Rep to the DC State Board of Education. With enrollment at both DC Public and Public Charter Schools up, compared up significantly compared to just a decade ago, we all want to see continued momentum and support of these critical public institutions-- in fact, as taxpayers, we're owed that.
Zachary Parker is the Best Choice for Ward 5 Rep to the DC State BOE
I'm supporting Zachary Parker for Ward 5 Representative to the DC State Board of Education. Zachary is the only candidate actively working in DC Schools every day. He last taught 5th-grade math (God bless him for that) and now works as an education consultant, partnering with DC Schools-- Brookland MS, Dunbar SH, Mundo Verde-- to name a few. In fact, a few weeks ago, I was picking our 5-year old up from aftercare and I ran into Zachary as he was getting ready to lead a review of our school's ANet test data to develop strategies to help close achievement gaps.
Zachary is Committed to Equity for Ward 5 Students
Zachary has a master's in education policy from Columbia University and his entire campaign is about equity for Ward 5 students. He's been endorsed by The Washington Post, The Washington Teacher's Union, Jews United for Justice Campaign Fund, the majority of our Ward 5 ANCs and many other leaders in our community.
An Award-Winning Educator, Ready to Put Ward 5 Students First
No, he is not a father... yet. Frankly, I've been disappointed by the effort to wield that against him, as if that is somehow a negative. He is an award-winning teacher who would bring to the DC State Board of Ed the invaluable perspective of teachers, principals, and students. Who better to serve us than a passionate educator who can and will make working for our children his *entire focus*?
