Shawnee Mission chapter of National Teachers Association endorses Altenbernd in school board race

The Shawnee Mission chapter of the National Teachers Association has endorsed Bart Altenbernd in his campaign for the Shawnee Mission School Board.

Altenbernd had previously been endorsed by the Kansas Families for Education PAC and the Mainstream Coalition PAC.

Altenbernd’s campaign posted the following statement on his Web site in response to the endorsement:

Bart is honored today to receive the endorsement of the Shawnee Mission National Education Association, which advocates for teachers and for quality public schools. As a former teacher, coach and administrator, Bart understands better than any other candidate the importance of providing our students with the best possible teachers and with keeping student/teacher ratios as low as possible. Few people play a more formative and inspiring role in a child’s life. Thank you, teachers, for your support.
