Public education must be improved with a system of high standards and accountability with consequences for underperforming teachers and schools. I support scholarships for students to attend the school of their choice. I am a product of the public school system and fully support public schools.
As a college instructor I propose the establishment of a public-private partnership to properly educate and train students in technical and vocational skills. I have viewed firsthand the results in my students at Long Beach City College when a focused vocational educational program is properly operated. I believe we must identify early in our children's education the student's best qualified for a vocational or technical education, as well as students that are best qualified for a college or university education and provide them the opportunity for success.
