Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

ABOUT: Diane Douglas - Candidate For AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction

Diane Douglas for AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction
I began studying the American education system and the federal government’s ever increasing intrusion into our local control since the early 1990s. I did it on my own, for my own edification rather than through a college of “education” in order to add letters after my name.  I’ve studied the history of our education system; the intent of our Founding Fathers for public education; curriculum trends and fads; lawsuits that have changed our education system by judicial fiat and so much more. I went wherever the trail led. So much of what I studied “in theory,” I then experienced in practice while serving on the Peoria Unified School District governing board.

The two most important duties we have, as a society, are protect our country, borders and sovereignty; and to educate our children to perpetuate the liberty with which we have been blessed as a nation. The prior is the proper, constitutional role of the federal government, the latter is not. Currently the federal government has its roles reversed.

While I have been blessed with various opportunities this is the single most important “job” I have held in my adult life was being a full time mother; anything I have ever done or achieved pales in comparison.
