Our education system is broken and our schools are failing our students. The best down payment we can make on Indiana's economic future is by investing in education today. Education is very personal to me. My wife, Mariama, is local educator and she sees every day the challenges teachers and students are facing. I will fight to reform No Child Left Behind, with more funding and increased flexibility. I will also make sure our kids are prepared for the jobs of the 21st century, by giving them the classrooms of the 21st century.
