FCCPR has added Don Alexander, who is running for School Committee, to its slate of progressive candidates for the November 7 Greenfield elections. While Don is not yet a member of FCCPR, he agrees with our platform. We believe Don will be a positive ally for us on the School Committee and that he and Bob Cooley, our other endorsed candidate, can work well together. An endorsement by FCCPR commits us to help these candidates get elected and, after the election, to encourage and support their efforts to support a progressive platform on the School Committee.
Don has an M.Ed in Education from the University of Massachusetts and is currently on the School Committee, having been elected by the School Committee to fill a vacant position.
Supports a strong civics education curriculum;
Supports the civil rights of all students;
Supports single-payer health insurance;
Opposes the expansion of charter schools; and
Opposes high stakes testing.
