Change Begins with Us: Our Platform
Our nation's youth have so much to offer, and we need to ensure that our communities and public schools are best meeting their needs. We need to move our communities and public schools Forward together. Dr. Flowers’ plan is comprised of various factors that collectively contribute towards the success that a child accomplishes in the classroom. All factors must be fulfilled to help strengthen public schools and ensure a positive transition from the community to classroom to college and career. If everyday individuals, community leaders, organizations, and businesses work in unison, we can close the gaps in education that have been affecting the most underserved members' communities in Houston for decades.
Take a look below to see what Dr. Flowers believes will help lead to a powerful transformation in our communities and public education.
It is our belief that a school district should always have children and their families as their most essential priority. Our children should remain at the forefront of all significant decisions that are made at the board table.
Collaboration is necessary to ensure that the mission of providing the best educational opportunities to students can be met. To help with this important cause, we must have the assistance of local governmental agencies, community organizations, as well as business entities to help bolster our schools from an organizational, financial and human capital standpoint.
Having organizations partner and engage with school districts is necessary. Unfortunately, many schools do not have the access, tools, or resources to fulfill education responsibilities that are necessary for student success. Such organizations can provide technology, knowledge, and other assets that will close the gaps for students, parents, and teachers.
A curriculum utilized district wide should always be improved and modified to meet the changing needs of students and our society’s institutions. Such institutions include the higher education sector and public/private industry. Additionally, an effective curriculum should include STEM initiatives that will further enrich the educational experience of students.
An educator profoundly affects the life of a child. He or she has the power to influence a student in various ways. To ensure that teachers work effectively to influence the education of students positively, we must strengthen our school districts by providing educators with the necessary resources to be effective classroom leaders. Most importantly, educators should have the full support of their respective school administration and the school board
A community has the right to obtain all necessary information regarding activities performed by a school board. The community elects these leaders in important positions of trust. Therefore, transparency should be a priority, and school boards should govern themselves accordingly.
Dr. Reagan Flowers will do all that it takes to ensure accountability and transparency are present at all times. She will work tirelessly to foster a lasting change that will help elevate students and assist their families overcome barriers to a quality education. Join her and help uplift the voices of students, parents, teachers and Our Community.
