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 four years by keeping our priorities straight:
- I have fought to maintain small class sizes and saved 1,500 teacher jobs in the midst of a terrible budget crisis.
- I cut administration to keep teachers in the classroom and am leading 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.
