As the son of an educator who has worked in the 158th district for the last 30 years, Scott carries a special understanding of the difficulties teachers face on a daily basis. He understands that education, as is the case with the majority of issues, should be handled at the state and local levels. As the Representative for the 158th district, Scott will work with school administrators and educators on the issues that are hampering their ability to prepare our youth for today's world. Scott will also work to improve the teaching of our state and national history, the workings of our government entities, and most importantly the Constitution. Finally, as a resident of a rural area, Scott understands the need to protect funding for public education, and ensure that state funds are being allocated equitably between metropolitan and rural areas.
