BOE Candidate Kendal is Focused on Delivering an Outstanding Public Education

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter in support of Dafna Kendal‘s re-election to the Board of Education. Like Dafna, I am a first-generation American, and like Dafna, the beneficiary of an outstanding public school education. As I have gotten to know her over the past several years, it is apparent that Dafna firmly believes in the importance of our school district maintaining a rigorous curriculum. She wants all students to have the opportunity to succeed, and she believes in an additive approach to equity that involves raising the floor for all students — not eliminating classes, rather enhancing each student’s experience. 

As our community continues to grow and emerge from the last years’ pandemic, her experience working on the Board of Education is vital. Not only is she always willing to listen to all sides of an issue, she brings a depth of knowledge of working with the schools, community, and students that is un-paralleled in this election season. I am confident that she will continue to strive to ensure that the Princeton Public Schools remains one of the best districts in the country.

Please join me in voting for Dafna this November.
