Columbus City School Board
Abby Vaile has been a teacher in Columbus public schools for over 30 years, beginning her career in special education. She has seen firsthand the ways in which Columbus children and families need access to good, transparent, quality, funded public education, with a board grounded in values of equity and inclusion, so that all children across the city she calls home have the opportunity and freedom to thrive.
A strong supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary, Abby was inspired by his leadership to consider a run for office herself, joining the Yes We Can Columbus slate after her years of organizing on education justice issues. If elected, she will work to ensure that public schools continue to be public, not run by corporate entities, whose purpose is profit not education.
