  1. Nicely written, where does your candidate stand on the big issues such as critical race theory? Indoctrination of our children?
    In my heart, I believe we need to get back to the basics. Let’s teach our children how to read, write, spell, problem solve. Remember the basic skills taught? Home economics, basic repairs, basic cooking, budgeting, basic health care. Teach all sides of the issues WITHOUT making decisions FOR them or imposing your own views. Allow our children to do their own research and decide where they stand on current issues. We need to allow children to hear ALL sides, clearly and openly, unbiased. Respecting all people, respecting your elders, leaders. Not TELL them what to think. These are the candidates I’ll support.

    • Here we go again. Critical race theory? Indoctrination of children? You seem to want a “back to the 50s” approach to education. We haven’t lived in that world for a very long time. Frankly, I’m amazed that Watertown has so many amazing School Committee candidates in the running this year given the nonsense they are expected to have to address!

  2. I agree with Wendy. We would love to understand where Rachel stands on real issues like how to improve the overall WPS system and improve our status within the Commonwealth. We barely crack the middle of the pack in ratings. https://www.schooldigger.com/go/MA/city/Watertown/search.aspx
    With the robust education budget and great location to the best universities on the planet our kids deserve a better learning experience. It would be nice to see a plan to get us there.
    Also, I would like to know where Rachel stands on the controversial teachings of Critical race theory (CRT)? The School Resource Officers? and the New High School plan.
    By looking at her facebook page and website https://www.rachelekay.com/platform it is very sparse on a platform and that make me nervous.
