Q -- Will education be a priority for you?
A -- Very much so. My wife is a public school teacher. My two sons are products of the public school system. And I'm a trustee of Western Carolina University. I care deeply about education and opportunities for young people. We need more local control of our schools, without the burden of state bureaucracy. We need to value our teachers as the professionals they are. We need discipline in the classroom. We need our schools to be safe. And we need to make sure that kids learn the basics of reading, math, and science.
