Marie Manning on the Issues:
Fighting for Local Education:
After nearly more than 50 years of serving in multiple roles as an educator, Marie Manning knows that the best education a child can receive is one that is controlled locally. Marie is running for State School Board because she believes the people in Blount, Calhoun, Cullman, Cherokee, Etowah, Marshall, St. Clair, and Talladega Counties know best how to educate their children. Marie Manning will fight each day to ensure that education decisions made for our children are done so with local support, local input, and are always to the benefit of local District 6 children.
Critical Race Theory:
The United States of America is the greatest country this world has ever seen. We are a melting pot of many cultures, beliefs, and values. Our students should never be subjected to learning shameful, unethical, or unproven curriculum, which is what Critical Race Theory is. Each student should be taught about pride, honesty, integrity, and the other values that make up this great nation. Marie Manning will never stand for, support, or vote for the Critical Race Theory curriculum and will oppose every effort made to pursue it.
Faith in Schools:
Each student in District 6 is not the same and should never be subjected to ridicule for expressing his or her beliefs. Students in Alabama should always feel welcomed and free to pray in school and follow their own core beliefs. Marie Manning will always fight to ensure students' rights to worship are never threatened.
Common Sense Conservatism:
God created man and woman. It's really that simple. Marie Manning believes those who are born a male should use the male-assigned restroom and play in the male-assigned athletic programs, and those who are born a female should use the female-assigned restroom and play in the female-assigned athletic programs. She's a common-sense conservative.
Conservative Alabama Values:
One thing is clear about Marie Manning: She's a conservative Republican through and through. She's pro-life, pro-second amendment, and pro-family. Marie's career as an educator has taught her that we as conservatives must work to instill values in our children that are beneficial in their future lives as good citizens, having positive impacts on their communities, and understanding the value education has on our ability as a country to survive. Marie believes that Alabama must step up soon to help fix our education system, save our country, and work to preserve the Christian values our country was founded on.
