Working to Improve our Education System
As an advocate for better education, I believe that the safety and security of our children is the most important part of an effective education system. Before our children can learn, first and foremost they must feel safe. That is why I sponsored Anti-Bullying legislation. We put the pressure on all school districts to revise or adopt comprehensive anti-bullying policies across the state. Although our education system continues to get better every year, there is no doubt we still have work to do. We must do a better job of attracting the best and brightest teachers to our schools by rewarding excellence! I will continue to work for higher accountability while promoting more options for our students. As a father of three children, I understand there isn't one formula for success but every child can learn if given the right opportunity and the right teacher.
