EXAMINE EFFECTIVENESS OF CURRICULUM STANDARDS

It's important to ensure that curriculum is age-appropriate, that it is preparing students for the real world and that teachers are afforded the time needed to cover the required material.

REDUCE AMOUNT OF STANDARDIZED TESTING

An appropriate level of testing serves a purpose, and we should always strive to maintain a balance between monitoring progress and preserving class time.

INCREASE LOCAL FUNDING TO SCHOOLS

With unfunded mandates, increases in school population and greater individual student needs, our public schools can always use more funding to effectively manage these and other challenges.

EXPAND ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION

Our young people deserve the opportunity to pursue their dreams without being saddled with high college debt.  We can come up with creative and affordable solutions to offer at our public colleges and universities.
