Campaign themes

2014

Stodghill explains his reasons for running in 2014 on his campaign's Facebook page:

Four years ago the voters of the Central District elected me to the Newport News School Board. Since that time I have worked to bring back the 10-point grading scale, enrich our curriculum with creativity, problem solving and critical thinking skills. Over that time we have seen a dramatic increase in on-time graduation and a dramatic reduction in the drop-out rate. I want to continue the work to make our school system even better by focusing on improving school culture, student achievement and teaching conditions.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[7]
