Academics, transparency and parental rights.

Roy is a product of the public education system and is grateful for what it has afforded him. However, he is a strong proponent of school choice. So how can Higley Unified Schools be competitive? Trust, accountability and transparency are key.

The Issues At Hand

Emphasis should be focused on the teachers, students, their families, and the community at large. Parent engagement is essential to understanding the needs of their children and addressing academic and policy concerns. Teachers should be held accountable for teaching what is acceptable to the parents. Students also need to be held accountable to meet academic standards. Finally, the district needs to be transparent in fiscal spending, curriculum development and perform due diligence of proper educational materials that is acceptable to parents.

For a Better Future

Like many parents in the Higley District, Roy has seen the repercussions of closed schools, isolation, and mask mandates first-hand.  He has witnessed the learning loss that impacted the students, parents and the community at large. Likewise, Roy has experienced loss of input parents have received from their school boards during the pandemic.

Roy is equally concerned about dangerous ideologies being introduced into in our classrooms labeled as Critical Race Theory (CRT), Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), and Continuing Sex Education (CSE).

These programs are designed to replace a student’s parents, their culture, and their Judeo-Christian beliefs. These ideologies go against the very fabric of our values and our culture as a nation.

Parents are life-long teachers and they should be the one in control of their children’s future. Roy understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to our children’s education. By implementing school choice, parents will have input in where they send their kids to school. This will naturally create healthy competition in our schools, whether it be public, charter or parochial.  

For these reasons, Roy Morales has decided to run for the position on the Higley District school board.
