Boom's Platform initiatives
a.) I will advocate to ensure that all charter schools within Orleans Parish provide Equitable opportunities for ALL students, regardless of Race, Creed, Color or Sexual Orientation. ALL students have a Fundamental Right to a fair and Equitable Education which accommodates each student’s academic needs.
b.) I will also advocate for Transparency in Policies that are implemented to service our students, both academically and in social structures that outline disciplinary practices to ensure that those practices are in the best interest of students.
c.) Furthermore I will advocate to hold schools accountable for ensuring that those practices are being applied in accordance with the charter schools terms of contract.
I will serve as a liason on the behalf of students, parents and community members to ensure that their voices are heard and placed under true and actual consideration when policies are created that will directly affect them.
I believe that Teacher’s Voices should be heard without fear of harsh repercussions and that their insight should also be in consideration as it relates to policies in curriculum and other academic services rendered towards our students. I will push back against “At WIll” contracts that do not assist in the establishment of consistency and the development of a strong culture within schools.
I will fight that our students are serviced with Empathy when decisions are made in reference to how our students are policed within schools. I will fight to eradicate harsh punitive disciplinary practices that aid and abet in the school to prison pipeline.
I am a proponent for the return of Community Schools and the elimination of the One App so that our students may attend schools within their respective neighborhoods.
I will also fight for the return of the OPSB as the Centralized Governing Body for ALL schools and ensure that no school is operating autonomously. And to ensure that the OPSB holds the Orleans Parish School Board Superintendent accountable for ensuring that all schools operate within the terms of their contract.
