Education

Both of my parents were teachers, so I strongly support public education.  One of the most important roles of government is to teach our children. 

My support of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act delivered more than $200 million in additional aid to the schools in my district.

The money prevented at least six schools from closing. 

We need to move beyond testing obsession, “factory schools,” and “one-size-fits-all education.”  Every child is a unique bundle of talents, skills and interests.  A proper education focuses on what every child uniquely has to offer, and then develops it.  The things that make us different are the things that make us special.
