As a new father, and a product of our local schools, there is nothing that I want to see more than for our children to be given the best opportunity to succeed in an increasingly competitive global economy. We must make sure that more of your money makes it into the classroom, and that less is spent on bureaucracy. We must ensure that education is "fully funded," as education is the paramount duty of Washington State. Creative solutions are also necessary as all children learn differently. Charter schools, technical schools, and all other options must be explored in order to properly educate our future generations!
