Today’s guest is Tanya Simons, who is running for re-election in Osseo Public Schools (ISD 279). It is a vast district that covers eight metro cities. She is a lifelong Minnesotan, who was involved in education through coaching and mentoring before running for school board.

Our children are in the care of their school a huge amount of time, and want to make sure that they have their child’s best interests at heart. There have been challenges with online learning, academics, mental health, and many more issues. Parents are concerned across the nation, as education takes center stage.

Because of its sheer size, District 279 comes with additional issues because of immigration, integration, poverty, and other challenges that are part and parcel to being in a suburban district. We discuss these issues, gender identification and affirmation issues, how to better connect with parents, and more.

Take a listen and consider how you can be of help to your local schools to keep the schools on track and creating the leadership of tomorrow that we want to see.
