Whether it's true or not, we've got to change our mindset in terms of not only how we think of ourselves but how others perceive us. So, let's start with our state constitution and remove the "minimally adequate" language. Let's guarantee that we will provide all children the opportunity for a "high quality" education, regardless of their zip-code.
Achieving this will be my top priority.
Schools are communities in which teachers, administrators, and support staff work together to ensure that every child has a holistic and rewarding learning experience. That means ...
I strongly believe in a parent's role as their child's first teacher. Schools should be havens for innovation and creativity where children learn, and teachers teach. "Our classrooms should be about education, not indoctrination." I promise to encourage and fight for the right for all children to learn.
