As a father of two daughters, I recognize the importance of ensuring that all students receive a quality education. Making sure that our local public schools continue to provide the best possible education is one of our most important jobs as state legislators. We must fight for music and art programs that have been under attack the past several years and fight to pay our educators appropriately.
We must work hard to empower and educate parents that the job of educating our children is not the school systems' alone. Parents must take an active role in the responsibility of educating their children.
