As the proud graduate of Nevada's K-12 and University education systems and the proud father of six children who have graduated from or are currently attending Nevada's public schools, Mark understands the need to provide a quality education to our children. Education is the engine that will drive improvements to our economy and increase the quality of life for the next generation. We need to focus on core subjects -- reading, writing, math, science and history. Mark supports giving parents the option to choose schools that are right for their children. He will work to improve public education by advocating for students -- not entrenched bureaucracy -- shifting cost-savings directly to the classroom, and cutting the education bureaucracy and using the money saved to hire more teachers and reduce class size.
