Mike Morath for Dallas School Board

Worried about sending your kids to public school in Dallas?

Do something about it by voting in the Dallas School Board election coming up on May 14, 2011. A dear friend of ours, Mike Morath, has recently announced his campaign for this election.

Mike has already devoted his professional life to improving the lives of children through his work as President of Minute Menu, a federal reimbursement program dedicated to providing nutritious meals for children of low-income families. He is stepping away from his company to devote his time and energy to improving the Dallas public school system. He knows it’s a hard road, but he has some great ideas.

Spending more of our budget on teachers, the people directly in charge of our children’s education on a daily basis.

Empowering principals through professional development programs that show them how to be excellent leaders who employ excellent teachers.

Involving parents to a greater degree, encouraging them to take a more active role in their children’s education.

Don’t these sound like the types of goals we should be trying to achieve in our schools? Learn more about Mike Morath and his campaign for school board at and consider getting an “I Like Mike” yard sign for your house if you live in his district. I can’t wait for mine to arrive!

But you DO NOT have to live in his district, or even in Dallas, to help! Spread the word about Mike on your blogs, Twitter, e-mail, and Facebook. You can also support Mike’s campaign with donations.
