Education -- our children are always a priority. As State Representative I will ensure that they will be provided the tools necessary to be successful in whatever avenue of education they pursue.
*Public schools are struggling, and the dwindling priority that our legislature has made of education in the state of Michigan has hurt our children's future and our economy. We must make education a focus of our efforts to restoring Michigan's future.
*Public schools are a big part of the community; it is a part of a community's history and identity. Consolidation and charter schools take away from that and that sense of history and identity can never be regained.
*Michigan needs to make access to college and other post-secondary, lifelong education a priority. If Michigan is to attract businesses it must have a trained workforce. When we invest in education, we invest in ourselves.
