On March 13, I will be voting for Dan Brosgol for school committee. I am highly invested in the Bedford Public Schools because I have been a public, middle-school science teacher for the past seventeen years and now I send my three children to school in town.
I believe deeply and passionately in the value of public education. I believe it takes great teachers, administrators, and the elected school board to create a school system.
This system must collaborate with families to make public education high functioning. It may never be perfect, but those of us who serve in public education aspire to it.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed many unimaginable challenges on public schools. There are not obvious answers and every decision has many consequences.
My conversations with Dan have always revealed a person who is committed to doing what is best for the greatest number of people while considering the impacts on those who remain in need.
I appreciate how Dan stays positive and motivated after a difficult decision by focusing on how to address the challenges that arise from the recent decisions.
Dan brings hope in a time where hope is fleeting. Please join me in returning Dan to the Bedford School Committee.
