“I see my role as a steward, prudently investing taxpayer funds into teaching students the skills, character, and wisdom they’ll need to build strong families and careers.” –Ed Brey


Ed has supported several initiatives to improve our schools while remaining careful with spending. Here are some highlights. Those adopted by the district are marked with a ✓.

Safe students

Training: Prepare teachers with a wider range of threat response options. ✓

Security: Modernize cameras and communication technology. ✓

Private spaces: Give parents confidence that girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams are separate from boys.

Solid academics

Best teachers: Use merit pay to attract and retain top teachers at fair market rates.

Career readiness: Expand our college-level and trade-skill courses. ✓ (with more to do)

Improved classes: Upgrade to new evidence-based curriculums in math and English. ✓

Classrooms without politics

Patriotism: Teach America’s heritage as a great nation, keep balance, and analyze our founding documents.

Neutrality: Keep classrooms welcoming, but without identity politics like “Progress Pride” flags and “Safe Space” signs.

Academic depth: Replace polarizing political slogans on classroom walls with projects rich in perspective and critical thinking.

Engaged community

Parent rights: Let parents decide what’s best for their kids, e.g. on gender identity. Education is a partnership.

Transparency: Post instructional material online. Letting the community in keeps special interests out.

Oversight: End the Gender and Sexuality Alliance bypass of parent, community, and Board review of sex ed content.


Ed is a thoughtful, engaged and concerned local school board member. The Sheboygan Falls School District is well served with board members like Ed Brey.
