Issue Position: Preparing Our Children for the Future
Children are the key to a better future. Our children will be tomorrow's teachers, doctors, scientists, parents and even Presidents. That's why helping children has long been one of my top priorities. We need to make sure they get the best education possible so they will be prepared for the challenges of this new century.
I believe we must look at a number of ways to prepare our children for the future. That is why, along with a focus on strengthening elementary and secondary education, I have also been a strong supporter of providing our children with quality child care, the opportunity to participate in after school programs, and the nourishment they need in school breakfast programs.
