"I know Fatima to be an extraordinary mother and advocate for children and education. I know she will work hard to make meaningful and logical improvements for education. She is not afraid to challenge the status quo for the benefit of all and she will fight for honesty and transparency in how money is spent on education. If you want meaningful change to occur and honest politics, Fatima is the best and your only choice."
– Dr. Crystal Simmons, School Psychologist & Lecturer
"I have known and experienced Fatima Alleyne's passionate commitment to and investment in education for many years. At UC Berkeley, Fatima was indefatigable in expanding the horizons of pre-college students, by introducing' them to the faculty, students, and opportunities available at Cal. I also experienced personally Fatima's commitment to the professional development of STEM teachers, when collaborating on a grant proposal bringing university resources to the schools. Fatima is equally committed to clear-eyed assessment of learning outcomes and evaluation of school programs.
Dr. Alleyne will bring both energy and wisdom to the School Board. I heartily endorse her.

"We have had many opportunities to listen to Fatima share her positions on a variety of issues. We have observed her energy, determination, and commitment to improve policies relevant to African American children in West Contra Costa School District and the greater Bay Area. Fatima's leadership and research skills will benefit all children and their families who live and attend schools in West Contra Costa. It is with much pleasure that The BlackBoard endorses Fatima, as a candidate for County Board of Education."
