Our schools must be safe, open environments that foster learning, where all of our children are welcome to perform at their best.
Sukh supports employing proactive strategies within our schools to protect our children against bullying and is proud of the early, but promising accomplishments of local organizations, such as Stand for the Silent.
We must provide better support for our teachers. Yuba City teachers have been asked to pay for basic learning supplies out of their own pockets for far too long. Also, our talent drain must stop. The achievements of the Teacher’s Association in September 2016 demonstrate what can be accomplished when our community rallies behind a just cause.
Healthy bodies lead to healthy minds. Rusty, run-down playground equipment is not only unhealthy, but unacceptable. Sukh Sidhu will use his position to advocate for clean playgrounds that encourage physical health in our schools, including promoting healthy environments for students with special needs.
