We spend more money on education than any surrounding state and the results do not show it. I do not think there is enough local control within our education system. Teachers are forced to teach to a test and not necessarily open the creative minds of our children. Furthermore, we need to place the money devoted to education more in the classroom and less to the administration.
I welcome this challenge as I not only have 5 grandchildren who are going to be our future leaders but all three of my children are teachers themselves. This issue is too significant to just "keep doing what we have been doing." We need to take on the special interests which have far too long dictated what goes into our classrooms. The quality of the end result is far too important.
