I believe nothing could be more important to our national security and ability to compete globally than the education of our children and our international status as an educated society. We must insist on reform as it relates to the delivery of 21st Century education. We must not continue to utilize 20th century methods and methodologies to educate our youth and society and expect to compete in an ever-changing and evolving world. While funding education should be a top priority, delivering a quality product and improvements on results is equally as important. Our expectation for educational output must be met, but we must also meet that same level of expectation with unprecedented compensation and support for those who deliver the results expected. I believe the State should give our local school districts and leaders the flexibilities necessary to deliver a quality product, but with that flexibility there must be an increased level of local accountability. I plan to introduce legislation directed at improving our educational systems and student achievement while providing equal opportunity and access to a quality education to every child regardless of the social economic status of his/her parents
