Technology in our Schools

Question: What are your thoughts concerning how to provide technology upgrades to the schools for classroom instruction?
Rachel Chumney: This is something that I have to admit I need to learn more about. I'm not sure we're lacking in this area. I feel that like on the elementary level which I'm most familiar, we're doing ok. I'm not sure about the junior high level and the high school level.
A runoff election for Place 4 on the Richardson ISD Board of Trustees will happen on June 15 (early voting June 3-11 at Richardson Civic Center). The runoff is between incumbent Lanet Greenhaw and Rachel Chumney. I endorsed Lanet Greenhaw in the joint election on May 11. I endorse her again in the runoff. The question above is one reason why.

If you think that someone who admits to not knowing what's happening in junior highs and high schools might not be ready to be school board trustee, then you might want to look beyond Rachel Chumney for a better candidate.

Look, Rachel Chumney is a nice enough person. She's just not qualified for school board. Don't rely just on the quote I found telling. Listen to Chumney's whole answer (starting 16:30). Then, compare with Lanet Greenhaw's answer (starting 18:31). No contest. Vote for Greenhaw.
