Thanks for your Support!

Who is Mary Lord?

Why Mary is running for office

The State Board has three major initiatives in the works (more...),  and with your help Mary would like to stick around and complete them:

  1. and give credit for "competency," not just time spent in a high school classroom.
  2. Transform science education through new coming up for approval in all 50 states later this year.
  3. Implement the new Common Core literacy and math standards.

Why your help is important

You know your community.  The District has many neighborhoods with different strengths and needs.

You tell us what needs to be done.  You hear and see things that are important.

You know your kids.  Families know their kids best.  While it won't happen overnight, the standards the State Board sets will eventually shape the futures of all our families.

You know what matters.  Sure, everyone wants "the best" for kids.  But every student has different strengths and it's quite another matter to figure out how to make a system that delivers results for as many kids as possible.  It's listening to you that helps make it clear which results really matter.

Let's be frank

Mary's passion is public education not politics.  Education policy tools and techniques are her "thing," the District of Columbia is her home , she's done a great job so far, and she's shown she's willing to listen .  It simply makes good sense to re-elect Mary Lord to the State Board of Education on November 6.
