Why are you running for the Board of Education?
My name is Michele Devine-Hartnett and I am a candidate for this year’s North Wildwood School Board Election. The past 27 years, I have served the community as follows: G.W. Jaycees; WCA Coach Soccer and Softball; coached indoor soccer at the J. Byrne CC. For the past 12 years, I have served on the Recreation Commission for the N.W. Rec.Dept. Also, for the past 15 years, I have served as President for GWYS and coached for 9 years.
The reason why I decided to run for NW School Board is because I want to continue to make a positive difference in the lives of the children in the N.W.community. By being a part of the school board, I want the families to have a voice in their child’s education
Do you support the new state standards for sex education as described in the 2020 Comprehensive Health and Physical Education standards? How will your view impact the decisions you make?
I do not support the new state standards for sex education as described in the 2020 Comprehensive Health and Physical Education Standards. First of all, I believe that the parents should be having discussions with their children regarding these issues. Second, this has nothing to do with the education that will be needed to have a productive life with job skills that will benefit the children as they get older. Third, I believe that the classroom should be a place of learning and moral values should be brought back into our schools.
