Transformation, One SCHOOL BOARD At a Time

A new idea often requires time to process. Sometimes we don’t understand a new idea. Sometimes we understand it but don’t know how to implement it. It remains in the realm of theory.

Many of our readers no doubt understand the theory of bringing transformation to their communities, but don’t know how to do it. Christians should get on the school board

How do we transform culture?  How do we promote truth, goodness, and beauty in our communities? How do we do whats best for the health of our children? How do we push back on ideas and forces that will diminish and harm our communities and children?

One answer, from a recent post by our friend Christian Overman, is stunning in its simplicity and remarkable in its possibilities. Ready? Gather three friends and get yourself elected to a school board.

Here’s the account of a group that did that. They did not get the majority they sought, but theyre definitely giving voice. And who knows where it might go from here?


Last week, I introduced Dr. Darrell Furgason, a school board member in Chilliwack, B.C., who is being lambasted for speaking in favor of the current modest dress code, rather than adopting one that allows students to wear whatever they want, showing underwear and cleavage if they wish, with teachers and principals unable to say anything about it.

The week before, I wrote about a substitute teacher in Washington State being asked to accept a policy allowing biological males to use female locker rooms.

These cases are the tip of the iceberg. They are part of a “gender fluidity” ideology known as SOGI [“Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity”] that is being aggressively pushed by so-called “progressives” across the U.S.A. and Canada.

“The implementation (by the State) of SOGI ideology in public schools is a major battle that is raging right now,” says Dr. Furgason, “and we must get involved in it.”
