Rebecca Reiter started this petition to Senator Joni Albrecht and

Dismantle-"Take a machine or structure to pieces".  This is what needs done to the Nebraska Department of Education State school board.

It is clear that the Nebraska Department of Education is not listening to the overwhelming majority of Nebraskans who continue to show up to the board meetings each month, write emails, and initiate phone calls to the members of the board.  This board that is to represent the constituents that elected them into their positions.  The voices of the taxpayers whom they should be listening to are being silenced and not truly listened to. They are going through the motions, but comments and demeanor show many of them are not willing to change their course.  They seem intent on pushing something onto the people that the people do not want any part of.  They are not listening to the Governor or Senators speaking out against what they are attempting to push into our schools either.

There seems to be no accountability in place for their actions as they do not report to the governor or have checks and balances in place for the power they are wielding over the people and children of Nebraska.  This needs changed.  There needs to be a way to hold members accountable when actions are so incredibly egregious and harmful to Nebraska society as a whole.  They should not be allowed to push extreme political ideology on our children just because it is the bidding of the teachers union and their own political affiliation.  They should not be allowed to make up rules for open meetings that silence people that have came to speak their concerns.  The people should have a say in who is the Commissioner of the Board instead of the board hiring who they please.  If the board chooses not to work for the people, they need to answer to the people.  

If there is no way to hold these officials responsible and keep them in check and aligned with what Nebraskans want for our schools-then the board needs to be abolished.  Bureaucrats don't need to be dictating what our children are learning.  The parents of Nebraska should be the ones deciding that for their own children on a local level.  Return the power of the people to the people.  Introduce legislation to change the system in a way that will accomplish this.
