What things we control in this world, we control with our minds. The most precious gift we collectively give our children is education. Education is the great equalizer in our society, and we should embrace all forms and distribution methods of teaching. The greatness of America lies in our creative abilities to invent, manufacture and market new ideas and products. These all come from a quality education available to everyone. The correlation between economic wealth and education is undeniable. I support early and ambitious education for our children, teenagers, and college students.
