Malibu Education Activist Announces Board of Ed Bid

July 9, 2014

Local education activist Craig Foster announced this week he plans to enter this year’s Board of Education race in an attempt to get Malibu a seat back at the table — six years after Malibu last had a representative on the governing body of the Santa Monica- Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) and two years after Foster lost his first attempt. 

Foster is the president of Advocates for Malibu Public Schools (AMPS) and has spent several years working to form a separate Malibu school district. 

“I really do think and hope that there’s not only an acceptance, but a certain amount of desire by a lot of people in Santa Monica to hear Malibu’s voice and include Malibu’s voice and vision more directly,” said Foster. “I hope by election day, people are comfortable that I’ll be that person.”
