Our education system is the foundation for our future economy, and right now, we are failing our children. Undereducated students lead to an undereducated workforce that is unable to compete for jobs.
I believe that we as a state need to restructure the way in which we fund our public education system, by prioritizing our children's future. We need to invest in our teachers, require smaller class sizes, and prioritize public neighborhood schools. Our kids deserve better, and as a public school teacher for 25 years, I am ready to take these issues.
As a state, we need to evaluate how systems are linked. I believe investing in our kids is an investment in our future, which is a sustainable and diverse economy that competes globally for new jobs in Arizona.
