Plowhead is running for Oregon’s new congressional district
wo Newberg school board members have been targeted for recall by special interest groups
primarily funded by sources outside of the community.
An Oregon congressional candidate is saying that this should be
recognized as merely a political ploy..
Chair Brian Shannon and Vice Chair Dave Brown were both duly elected to their positions by
voters in the Newberg School District.
"Like many school board members throughout the country,
they’ve been fighting to make sure that children in the district receive the quality education they
deserve," said Angela Plowhead, who is running for Oregon's 6th Congressional District. "They’ve done everything they can to represent the voters who put them into office."
"Many of those voters are parents", Plowhead continued. "They have long felt ignored by bureaucrats and members of the
educational establishment. Those parents are understandably concerned that school officials are
focusing too much on bombarding students with political ideology and agendas, rather than the
fundamentals that will serve them well in their adult lives."
r. Angela Plowhead, who runs a psychology practice in Oregon, is running for congress as a Republican. She spoke in Newberg, in support of Shannon and Brown.
"For decades now, we’ve seen control of education shift further and further away from parents
and the community", she said. "The creation of the federal Department of Education in the late 1970s was
done in the name of improving outcomes. But despite billions of dollars being spent over the past
four decades, there has been little to show for that agency’s efforts as American education
outcomes regularly underperform those of other developed nations."
Plowhead also called out the complicity in the unions, "Even more shocking over the last few years is the transition to highly controversial curriculum created by advocacy and special interest groups and supported by unions into legislation. After
years of record revenues flowing into Oregon’s education system and new taxes being proposed
and implemented in the name of improving this system, Oregon now ranks 48th in the nation in
She points out that our kids are suffering. Not just academically, but emotionally.
"In my perspective as a clinical psychologist" she advised. "The damage that is being done to children in our
public schools is unnecessary and completely avoidable. Rather than reading, writing and
mathematics, they’re being hypersexualized and made overly anxious and depressed about their
carbon footprints and whether they are victims or oppressors. Instead of being taught history,
they’re being subjected to the bias of their instructors, who very seldom face scrutiny or
consequences for the outcomes and results, although our children are more depressed and
committing suicide at higher rates than ever."

t seems to many observers that parents throughout the nation are pushing back. Education was a major issue in the
recent Virginia governor’s race. One candidate essentially told parents that it’s none of their
business what their children are being taught in schools. They responded by flocking to the polls in droves to ensure his defeat.
"It is this attitude of educators believing they know better than you
what is best for your child that has dominated the local school boards, until parents have started
standing up to them, which is what Shannon and Brown have done," Plowhead explained. "Shannon and Brown are being attacked for taking a courageous stance and giving parents in the Newberg School District a voice. They should be applauded for their attempt to get the district
back to the basics that have been ignored for too long."
The recall election is scheduled to take place January 18th.
lowhead stated that This is nothing more than
a waste of time and money that would only undo the results of previous elections, where the
community has already spoken and selected who they wanted.
"These same kinds of special interest groups that have disastrously dominated education at the
federal and state level are trying to gain a foothold at the local level, " Plowhead stated. "However, we can still
maintain some independent influence by pushing back against their attempts to override the
voices of parents and our community at large. I strongly urge the voters of the Newberg School District to recognize this recall election for what it is and reject it outright. Vote “No” to the recall."
