Noah Webster Educational Foundation presents 
Introduction to School Boards
a self-paced online course 
Want to pursue a school board position at the local or state level? have no idea where to start?

Maybe you have little-to-no knowledge of the political arena, but you do have a passion for saving our kids’ educations from the liberal agendas taking over school boards?

Don’t let incumbents who don’t represent your values win by default! School board majorities are the key to taking back control of education and the future of our country. That’s why we created an online training course to teach you how to run for school board and WIN. 

Introduction to School Boards, taught by experienced school board members and educators from across the nation, offers you critical information and principles of leadership that you'll need to succeed, including: 

- What are school boards and what do they do?
- Where does their authority come from? 
- What’s the difference between a state and local school board?
- Do I have the right reasons for running?
- How do I launch a campaign and actually make a difference?
