Our children deserve the best in education. All of our schools, Salt Lake Elementary, Aliamanu Elementary, Moanalua Middle, Aliamanu Intermediate, Moanalua High and Radford High, should provide our children with the best teachers to inspire our students, the best educational resources including technology, and the best learning environment to make them feel safe. Investing in our children is an investment in the future and we are all committed to making sure that our students and schools are successful. But such investment and commitment cannot happen without proper resources, and current funding levels are threatening to undermine the quality of education for our keiki.
I will work for:
*Funding to improve our school facilities, educational resources, and access to technology, which we are currently not receiving
*Quality educators and staff, along with competitive salaries and benefits to recruit and retain them
*Early childhood education and adult education programs to keep education open to people of all ages and backgrounds
*School-community partnerships to foster educational enrichme
