"It is a greater work to educate a child, in the true and larger sense of the word, than to rule a state." -- William Ellery Channing
We have no more important responsibility than to guarantee our children are properly educated, giving them the necessary knowledge and job skills to compete in an ever-changing and competitive economic environment. We must focus primarily on the needs of the students and teachers, who are on the frontlines of education, rather than the bureaucracy often present in our educational system. Our children deserve the very best, and I will work hard to insure that teachers and students are the priority.
