Education is my number one priority. We must invest in our young people so they have the skills and compassion to be solid, productive citizens. We face a growing crisis in being able to recruit, train, and retain quality teachers and administrators in Kansas. We must find ways to make state education more efficient and to reward the education profession at all levels, K-12, Tech College, and University levels so that we continue to be in the top 10
states in the nation in educational quality.
