Supports increased funding for early childhood education programs
Supports increased funding for public schools K-12, but with the caveat that measures be taken to eliminate waste and promote efficiency.
Opposed to the school voucher program. It takes money away from the school districts that need it most. I especially oppose tax dollars being used to support religious schools.
Believes property taxes are a good way to collect funding. However, there should be income standards, and those who earn less than a set amount, and those who have lived in the same house for over 30 years, should be exempt.
Opposed to standardized tests. Teachers should be free to engage students, not teach to a particular test.
Supports increased funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs and community colleges.
