Elect Education Champions
Stand supported candidate, Andrea Cobb, was the first African American woman elected to the Tacoma School Board in 2015.
A large part of achieving progress in building better public schools is to ensure that the individuals in charge of education policy are making the best decisions when it comes to our children’s future.
When there is an election that impacts education – from local school boards to state representatives – we have to determine whether or not to get involved. Our endorsement process helps us understand if a candidate is a leader who will stand up for what is best for kids in our education system.
Not just anyone can be endorsed by Stand. We run a rigorous endorsement process. Our endorsement committee of parents, community members, and education advocates ask the tough questions of candidates to understand where they stand on key issues. From there they decide who has what it takes to be an education champion.
One of the most important ways you can be an advocate for students is by voting for candidates who prioritize education.
Here is the list of candidates that the Stand for Children Washington PAC has endorsed so far this year as education champions.
