I want to make sure that Arkansas fulfills its constitutional obligation to provide equal opportunity for an adequate education for all students in the state. That means:
-Making significant investment in public education at the pre-K, elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels.
-Updating and improving facilities and technology.
-Closing the achievement gap across various socio-economic and demographic populations.
-Encouraging innovation and developing creative ways to engage students in the classroom. (I admire the EAST initiative, and I support ongoing efforts to integrate its STEM programming into the state curriculum.)
