In tough economic times, we need to look to investing in education to keep our country globally competitive. No Child Left Behind left our schools in a poor state, where teachers are "teaching to the test" and subjects like science and history are on the chopping block. That is why I am pushing to change our education system.

I support education policies that ensure equal opportunity for all children. I am fighting to keep the promise of public education for every child, not just a select few that win a lottery or grant. Our students need research-driven innovation in our schools that will increase academic achievement and turn our students into critical thinkers, not test-takers.

My agenda includes long-term and high-quality solutions such as early childhood programs, more support personnel in schools to address barriers to learning, and a stable supply of experienced and effective teachers that will lead to dramatic and successful change.
