Gather Allies, Research Your District, And Start Pushing Back
Most likely, your district board members, superintendents, principals, administrators, and even some teachers are not going to be your allies. In fact, they may be opposed to your information and some do not like the idea of parents getting involved. Some may agree with you but are in no position to publicly sign on. Some parents who agree with you will also have to keep a low public profile if they fear losing their jobs.
Be understanding. Be patient and be relentless in gathering your foot soldiers. School boards will listen when they see a ground- well of parents writing letters, speaking up at board meetings, writing to local newspapers, phoning and emailing individual board members, and, if necessary, publicly mass protesting at the district office.
Sample flyer to distribute: When you are ready, make a flyer that you can email to every parent you know. Also, carry some with you so it can be handed out everywhere you come in contact with people. It can be posted on billboards at grocery stores, coffee shops, churches, and telephone poles.
Sample letter to mail or email: Remember to make it your own version. Send it to parents you know so they can forward it to their school board members, school staff. and other parents.
