DelawareCAN Action Fund Releases 2023 Slate of School Board Endorsements

On Tuesday, May 9 voters across the state will enter the ballot box to cast their vote in what are arguably our most important school board elections to date. From coast-to-coast, education policy has become one of the most discussed topics in politics and Delaware is no different. Last fall, the National Assessment for Education Policy released new data showing that Delaware has fallen nearly to the bottom of the country in math and reading scores and we heard little from our leaders. It is imperative that we elect innovative and dedicated candidates who are ready to do the hard work of getting our students back on track. After intensive interviews, DelawareCAN Action Fund has selected candidates that will do just that. With proven track records and a strong commitment to their community these are the candidates we can trust with the important decisions facing school boards today. We are proud to release these year’s slate of endorsed school board candidates and encourage you to cast your vote for them on Tuesday, May 9.
