Earning Your Vote
I hope you'll allow me to earn your vote. Below you can find my basic philosophy when it comes to a seat on the Sullivan County Board of Education.
I believe that quality education starts by having effective and common-sense policies that guide not dictate. The saying “the government nearest the people governs best” rings true when it comes to education, which is why we need to bring authority back to states and our local boards of education by fighting back against the Federal Department of Education and pushing for its elimination.
Academic excellence starts by hiring and retaining the best educators not keeping ones that are failing their students, to do this we start by providing great pay and benefits. We also need to eliminate the need for teachers to teach to a test as this does nothing to help children learn. We need to empower parents as every child has the right to have a good education and a safe learning environment that’s free from politics and indoctrination.
