Issues Facing San Diego

County Board of Education:


School Safety

“Making sure students are safe at school is paramount to me.” – Mark Powell




Affordable Housing For Teachers

“San Diego lacks enough affordable housing for teachers. Having teachers live in the neighborhoods they work in benefits students and parents.” – Mark Powell


School Repair

“Our schools are in desperate need of repair and I will implement policies that will insure things such as safe drinking water and a healthy classroom environment.” – Mark Powell


School Budget Deficits

“It is time to open the books, the public deserves an accounting of district expenditures and hold school leaders accountable for mismanaging their budgets.” – Mark Powell



Homelessness and Education

“We must start dealing with student homelessness as an ongoing core function of local government. Without a proactive approach our homeless student population will remain living in shelters, cars, streets and parks.” – Mark Powell


Prepare Students for the Workforce

“We need Career Techniqual Education throughout all 42 districts in San Diego County to prepare our students to work in a trade or craft.” – Mark Powell
