My wife and I chose public schools for our children. And we take an active role in their education. My wife is a school nurse at Browning Springs and we've worked with many dedicated teachers. We understand how important education is to the future of our community.
Education is the lifeline of economic development. Employers want to locate in communities where there is a well educated work force, trained for the jobs of tomorrow.
That's why as your State Representative, I will work to get more money into the class room and less to administration. I'll protect parent's choices about the education of their children.
And just like my grandmother told me
A good job comes from a good education. It's clear that we need a highly educated work force to create long term economic prosperity. That's why our community colleges and universities are so important. But many Kentuckians can't afford to go to college. That's why I will work to make college more affordable and accessible. I'm not talking about lowering standards,
I'm talking about opening the doors.
I support the KEESprogram and School Counts. And I will look for new innovative ways to help people afford a college education.
