Why elect Rani Dasi to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education?

Education is a critical enabler of individual success and community growth. The CHCCS board serves an important role in setting policies and creating an environment that enables learning.  I would like to be one of the seven board members who influence public education in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School district. 

What do I bring to the table?

What We're Reading: July 10

The Mouse that roared.

Tonight at 7:30 at Carrboro High School is the final performance of The Mouse that Roared. It's about the nation of Grand Fenwick that invaded the US and won by capturing the Q-bomb. Originally a cold war book it reminds me of current events of the last 60 years. A theme in the book was the formation of the Tiny Twenty to ban weapons of mass destruction. Lichtenstein, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Mexico, Iceland, Ecuador, Grand Fenwick and others form an alliance and with the threat of the Q-bomb won world peace.

A Noteworthy Agenda Item

On tonight’s consent agenda at the Orange County Board of Education is a resolution in support of immigrant children in our community.
