Improve Education -- The foundation of any viable and successful community is a first-class education system. Much too often, a child's access to a quality education depends on the wealth of his or her parents. This unfortunate reality is unacceptable. A child's economic circumstances should not prevent him or her from receiving the quality of education that every American deserves. We must level the playing field so that all students can gain access to great schools, colleges, and technical training programs to effectively compete for the best jobs. We must aggressively push for dramatic and systemic education reform. We must promote active and significant investment in the education of all children. When it comes to education, we will not take a backseat and we will not fail our kids.
