Making Florida first in education should be the goal of every legislator.We must work tirelessly to provide a quality education for every child. It's vitally important that we prepare our children for the 21st century workforce.
Providing a great education begins with accountability. Students must learn the materials required to become a productive member of our workforce, that means we need to stop passing children through the system that can't read and write.
Teachers and administrators must be held accountable as well. We must demand that they work diligently to teach all children, and we must reward them for their outstanding job by providing better pay and benefits.
