ENSURING A QUALITY EDUCATION FOR OUR KIDS:
In a worldwide economy, we must prepare our children to be competitive with the world
around us to enter the new job market. That is why we must always look at new and innovative
ideas and make sure that our children have a solid foundation of the basics to excel.
I believe that the best decisions are made at the local level by the parents, educators, and local
school boards that work daily with these children. I believe all forms of education are imperative
to help students succeed because each student has different needs and parents are best suited
to make the best choice for their children.
Goals for the upcoming session:
-Reject a top-down approach from either the federal government or state bureaucracy that
will get in the way of local educators and parents from best addressing the needs of their
-Decisions are best made at the local level. I support reforms to allow the people who work
daily with our kids to have a larger say in our education system operates in our community.
