I’m passionate about improving public education. I will fight for the interest of our children they deserve a quality Pre-school thru K-12 education and also the opportunity to attend a affordable College or University. I will work on legislation advocating for students getting the tools and resources needed to excel and thrive in school and at home. I will advocate for funding to be restored to 2011 levels across the board prior to the Synder administration cuts in education.
I’m dedicated to improving education curriculums to increase overall student literacy, retention and graduation rates. I will focus on comprehensive legislation to develop curriculums that promote an environment for students to excel in reading by funding reading intervention programs and other learning tools instrumental in increasing the reading levels for our children. Improved education funding legislation will provide the ability to assess where students are and develop comprehensive plans for intervention and development that create positive out comes from implementation and assist in improving students reading levels and aid in the current 3rd Grade Reading Law.
