Pennsylvania High School Student Running For School Board!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

This kid's got some ballz!

Connor Kurtz, a Pennsylvania high school junior at Daniel Boone High School, is running for the school board!

Why would a high school student be interested in a position on the school board? Because like A LOT of high school students, he realized some things just don't make any sense! Conner explained:

"I believe that I could do a much better job than many members on the school board are currently doing. I walk around the school, and I see things that just don’t make sense.”

We can't say this is the first time a student has run for this position for sure, but it's the first time we've ever heard of it, so we're pretty darn impressed!

The best part is, he'll be turning 18-years-old in September before the election, so he can LEGALLY run!

It sounds like this candidate will be a political force to be reckoned with too! He knows there are problems with the school district and isn't afraid to let them know why, as he explained:

“I realized they don’t know what they’re doing. They don’t have a plan. It boggles my mind that you can be on the school board without a plan.”

What's HIS plan? He won't be worrying about any birth certificates, but instead focusing on taxes…which he doesn't even pay yet!

"You don't have to pay taxes to know that taxes in Daniel Boone are too high", he exclaimed in his defense.

Not a bad defense either. Touche, Connor, Touche!

We're curious how the teachers who run the classrooms, will respond to a student running the school district. We smell a MAJOR CONFLICT in a made-for-television movie! Ha!

Check out the news story above to meet the candidate himself and hear what he's got to say.

Also, don't miss the ONLY person in the community reporters could find that doesn't approve of Connor's candidacy. A 106-year-old woman on the street thinks "he's too young." If more senior citizens share the same opinion, he may have just lost two-thirds of the voting population! LOLz!

Honestly, if there are legitimate problems in the school that may need an insider's view to fix, then we hope he wins! Best of luck on the campaign trail, Connor!

Would U vote for a student running for a position on the school board?

    good for him–this happened a few years back in our local school district, too, and it can be very beneficial for the district and the students!



  2. 2

    I would vote for a student, they have a good insight since they attend the school and know what goes on. I wish someone in my area would do this. Best of luck to him!



  3. 3

    Sounds like a great idea! The people on the school board haven't been to school usually in 30 plus years!! They don't know anything about what is really going on in school. I hope this trend picks up everywhere or at least younger people on the school board that remember what school is like.

    I hope he wins. He'll quickly find out everything isn't as cut-and-dry and it appears to be. That everyone can't be pleased all of the time.



  5. 5

    Best part is, if they don't allow him to run he can sue for ageism. If dumbass girls can sue for sexual harassment for just flirting then he can sue for ageism

    I don't agree entirely with the argument that a current student knows more about what's going on in the school….maybe on the surface to a degree, but there is alot of economic and political goings on that school boards deal with. I like kids wanting to get involved - but would just caution that this job is a lot harder and more involved than it probably appears.

    Well I don't know. I don't know where Daniel Boone High is, but the Governor of PA wants to cut PA school funding down to the bone. He wants to cut college education down and all education so I don't know if this school district is raising to taxes to make up for it, but most school districts are letting teachers go in droves. He is against starting a tax on the natural gas industry or anything else, but education is under the gun. So obviously this kid must see lots of waste or he must think certain teachers must suck and want them out the door.

    I went to Daniel Boone!!!!! this is crazy



  9. 9

    Well actually our school [Daniel Boone] is in a load of debt regardless of the cuts they are planning to make on institutions of higher eduacation which I find rediculous just for the record.

    Re: NookiesWA – Not to necessarily get hostile or anything but why would you even bring that up? He is being allowed to run and it was never an issue so there is absolutely no point in even talking about that. And even moreso a lawsuit is not the answer to every problem. Just because you dont like something doesnt mean you have to sue, especially over something as petty as that, theres no honor or decency when its used like that. But thats just me.

    There's a senior in my school (Pekin Community High School - Pekin, IL) thats on city council. Pretty cool.



  12. 12

    i'm from berks! so weird!!

    lower income taxes so people have the money to buy goods and services that have to be made or performed.now,there has to be someone to make the goods and perform those services.i believe thats what we call jobs.more jobs means more income tax revenue.the other option is to raise taxes so nobody has any cash to spend.what sounds like the smarter thing to do?sounds like this kid has it figured out.future conservative.

    Typical teenager …. they think they know-it-all and have all the answers.



  15. 15

    I would vote because I see alot of problems in my childrens school district!! More power to him if anyone is pissed that he is doing this then there assholes !



  16. 16

    this is so dumb his mom is a teacher and he's basically a tea party member… i really wonder what his parents think about this



  17. 17

    Re: Lexi Cake – lol *they're.

    I live right next to Daniel Boone school district and I think this is great. Overall, not just his school district but many other Berks County school districts need change and this is a good change. School boards don't see everything that happens in school and county like students do. Good luck!

    I just created an account to comment on how stupid this kid is. I know from experience in the DB school district the high taxes are caused by a flood of incoming developments in the Amity township, probably which he lives in, defaulting on loans and unable to pay their fair share of taxes. He could do a better job than most members? Fuck no. He is a naive little moron with an optimistic viewpoint but when it comes to the fact what is his plan? How will he make up for these high taxes? The school district already has had to cut funding on athletics and arts. But that is it, this video didn't say any of his plans, yet he rips on current members for having no "solid" plans. When this kid turns 18 I hope someone, preferably a current member of the board, delivers him a swift punch in the face to knock some sense into his thick skull. And tip #1, in the future when you run for an elected position you pasty terd its best not to base your main argument on the flaws of your opponents.

    nice, my last comment wasn't posted. but anyways i heard this all started when the kid did not get selected to be drum major in his high school band. sounds like he just has a grudge against the faculty. what a turd



  21. 21

    ^lol band nerd

    Re: dogggie – First of all, you talk about how this kid having no plans. If you did any research before you commented, you would have noticed that he has a website, on which are his plans for reversing the school's deficit. YOU'RE the naive one. Secondly, you say this kid probably is holding a grudge against his band. Why do you care? Are you a bandnerd, standing up for your precious organization? Probably. YOU'RE the one with the grudge, in which case YOU are the one basing your arguements on the "flaws of your opponent." Do you have any better ideas? Probably not. So shut up, and do something productive with your life instead of wasting your time insulting better people then you will ever be.

    Re: MichaelVikk – OI mike vick if you know half his issues are illegal. Do your research nerd. And no I'm not in band, but good guess. What are you one of his friends defending him? Most likely…



  24. 24

    Re: dogggie – Half of his issues are illegal?! LIKE WHAT?! I've done my research, and I'm not going to waste my time trying to make an imbecile like you see sense. It amazes me how stupid people can be. And as for me being his friend defending him, I'm sorry to say that is not the case. I've never met this kid in my life, but I wish I had; he knows what he's talking about, and more people should be like him by taking an initiative to help better their school and community. So please, don't waste our time by insulting, as I've said before, better people than yourself.

    I went to this kid's high school and not only do I not want him elected because of the fact that he's a moron he's also an extremist conservative too, the kind that would have homosexuals round up and executed
