I am against vouchers. I am against Betsy Devoss and everything she stands for. I am for a good public education and the new national trend is to privatize education and I am strongly against that.
Public schools are the heart of the community. The shared experience of our young people is vital to their development and sense of self and community. The teachers, the ball games, the shared experiences that form you for a lifetime. I will fight hard for strong public education. And let us be frank, I am not as interested in every school having computers as I am having their toilets work. Or, their roof not leak. And, I am for having strong teachers in math, science, and reading that are WELL PAID. America has lost sight of the basics. You can be anything you want to be in this country. But, without the basics, you don’t have a chance. That’s my belief.
