A Message from Dr. Evans
I came onto the Board because I was dissatisfied with the state of public education in San Diego. In spite of being hit with the worst budget crisis in a generation, we have come a long way in the past eight years by keeping our priorities straight:
- I fought to maintain small class sizes even during the economic crisis.
- I cut administration to keep teachers in the classroom and led the effort to reverse severe state funding cuts.
- As a San Diego psychologist, father of three and an experienced classroom teacher I have increased parental involvement in neighborhood schools and support parental choice for charter schools.
During these tough times we have worked together with our teachers and our test scores have steadily been going up. We are also excelling in music and the arts. We are a national leader in classroom technology. I am asking for your support to continue this work.
To continue with Vision 2020 for a world class school system it is imperative that we also elect Dr. Sharon Whitehurst-Payne in District E. As an educator with 40 years of experience, she has been a great contributor to the Board in her first year as a Trustee.
