The most crucial responsibility we have as a society is to protect and take care of our children. They are our future. School buildings need to be safe and sound, not leaking and decrepit. Children need to have access to the most up to date learning tools, no matter where they live in the Commonwealth. We need to provide more opportunities for vocational education so those students who choose not to attend college have the skills necessary to enter the workforce. And we need to provide funding so that all children who want to can go on to higher education.
