Economic opportunity starts with a quality education. Nebraska has a strong public education system; however, I will work to sustain the dynamic public, private and home school educational opportunities for our children. I want to make sure our families and educators have all the tools they need to provide a high quality education.

The Learning Community experiment, which is a burden on Sarpy County taxpayers, should be repealed, and control of education should be restored to the local school districts. School district boundaries should be kept in place. This is also a priority for me.

I support giving parents more input into their children's education, including working to add Nebraska to the 17 states that have implemented school choice programs. I also support tax credits for parents of children in private schools to offset some of their educational expenses.

Higher education programs can be streamlined so that there is no unnecessary, duplicative public spending on community college, state college, and university programming.
