Montgomery County Board of Education Election 2016
This year’s election includes not only president, but also many state and local positions, such as Montgomery County’s Board of Education. With 50% of county budget goes to our public school system, it is very important that we elect BOE members who we trust to get the work done.
On October 7, 2016, Chinese American Parent Associate – Montgomery County (CAPA-MC) held a community forum for all six Board of Education candidates (Anjali Reed Phukan, Shebra Evans, Phil Kauffman, Jeanette Dixon, Rebecca Smondrowski, and Brandon Rippeon). The forum served as a bridge for the candidates to communicate their platform and priorities to mainly Chinese American parents. The following document is a summary of their responses to CAPA-MC and audience’s questions.
