Vote for Fullmer


As a longtime teacher, having seen the level of education our students are getting from Spokane Public Schools, it’s clear that what Spokane schools have been doing isn’t working. I urge you to contact school board members to ask them two simple questions:

1. Are our graduating students adequately prepared either for college or the workforce?

I’ve seen too many grads with good grade-point averages who can’t handle simple math or write a coherent sentence. Few know how to study or are ready for the job environment.

2. How long will it take to bring about meaningful improvements?

I’ve been told for almost a decade that these things take time; to have patience. In the meantime, our students are losing out.

I’m voting for Sally Fullmer because she wants to let our good teachers teach so our students can succeed.
