Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Carmen Montano

Candidate for
Governing Board Member; Milpitas Unified School District

This information is provided by the candidate

I am running for School Board Trustee because I want to ensure that every student in the district is given every opportunity to succeed.

  • I believe education is the key to reduce ignorance and poverty. All Children are valuable and must be given the tools and the opportunity to succeed to be contributing members of society. All persons must be given the opportunity to be able meet the challenges of a new millineum.
  • I believe that we must be creative and innovative in finding ways for our kids to succeed. We are no longer living in an isolated environment, but rather we are a global village striving for the best for our children.
  • I believe that if we do not exhaust any and all possible means to provide the educational tools for our children then we have failed society as a whole. We must not only maintain high educational standards, but we must also assist our students in meeting those standards.
  • I believe that in order to meet those standards we must recruit teachers who are not only innovative and creative, but we must also find the financial means to retain them. In doing so, we prepare our students for the challenge to become successful young adults in a competitive World Wide Economy.
