The cornerstone of Idaho's communities is our schools. Besides producing quality workers and providing a path for better employment opportunities for families, education makes our communities attractive to those individuals and businesses looking to move.
Balancing the State budget on the backs of students hurts each community. A good education system is the key to improving the quality of life we enjoy and to attracting successful businesses to Idaho.
As a Legislator, I will continue to fight to make the education system in Idaho better. I will work with other Legislators to increase the funding our schools so desperately need while making sure that we get good value for our education spending. I will defend our teachers and our schools, and continue to focus on preparing our students for the world of the future.
