A podcast for members of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards and others about a wide range of educational issues they consider as elected officials.
School boards are hardly unique in that candidates are often drawn from similar social and political networks. This can lead to a lack of school board member diversity across many characteristics, including race, gender, class and age.
This episode includes a discussion with researchers about how to recruit women to run for locally elected office. The insights they share are applicable to improving school board diversity in general. They also summarized their research in the October 2021 issue of Wisconsin School News: https://wasb.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/WASB_2021-10-October.pdf#page=10
We also speak with a Wisconsin school board president about one way to educate potential new board members. We'll talk about how the Greendale School District's School Board Academy works, and how you can adapt it to your district. You can find contact information for our guest at his district website: https://www.greendaleschools.org/district/board.cfm
