Education is crucial to social mobility and the future well-being of our nation and its people. Every single child deserves the opportunity to receive a great education.
To achieve that goal, we need a properly funded budget for our children as they are the next generation that will not only work in but also lead our great state.
As job markets change, our teaching approach and teaching tools must change as well. For our children to compete in the highly technological and global marketplace, we need to leverage available technology within the classrooms and promote STEM to prepare our children for a brighter future.
Lastly, I support transferring control of schools to local communities, giving teachers more of a voice, as they know the needs of their district’s children better than disassociated bureaucrats in DC.
