Unlike his opponent, Bill will not vote to dismantle the Dept. of Education, which provides college aid to middle class families. Bill supports providing the resources public schools need to maintain high levels of educational excellence and prepare our children for the new economy and emerging technologies of the 21st century.
Bill understands that children can only learn in a safe educational environment. That's why, as District Attorney, he initiated a bullying prevention program to encourage respect among school children and to improve school climate. He also sponsored school safety training for law enforcement officials to prepare communities to deal with natural and man-made disasters. As a legislator, he sponsored the law creating drug free school zones and to require sprinklers in schools.
