EXCLUSIVE VIDEO MESSAGE from Lakewood High School Student and Board Of Education candidate Aasim Johnson. Johnson, 18, says he believes he can offer the BOE something which all the other members can’t, which is experience from within the system.
“Since I am a student and I’m in the trenches every day in Lakeowod, I bring a different opinion and ideas that the other board members won’t bring”, Johnson says.
Johnson says he hopes to bridge the language gap which will help the large Hispanic population within the school system, bring in mentoring programs, and also wants to offer an equal education experience for all religious and non-religious student, “Because all our students deserve the best”.
Johnson also explains that he’s looking to bring more consistency to the system.
“Out of my four years in the High School, I’ve been through 2 Superintendents, 3 Principals, and 7 Vice Principals, and that tells you a scary thing about Lakewood.”
