Power of Education
The foundation for a great community, great state, and a great nation is education. Education is the bridge from poverty to a better life. We know our children are the future. The education of our children rests in the hands of our elected representatives in Columbia. They have failed. We know the many reasons why they have failed and every one of these issues can be solved with immediate action by State Senators who care.
SC is one of the worst states for public education in the country. I shall work with local educators and administrators to create a plan and bring it to the Senate floor to raise our educational system to the quality our children need. We see many inequities in the education of our poor vs. our middle and upper class. A state-wide program of facility modernization, teacher pay increases, classroom supply, textbook provisions, and state-funded post-graduate teacher education will show immediate results. We must accept every penny the federal government offers us in education and not reject it. We must address the need for preschool education if our poor are to rise up and get a fair share of America’s wealth. We can do better, and when I am in office, we will do better!
What should the State Senate do to address this issue? Let me hear your voice, your concerns, and your ideas. My priority is to serve and be responsive.
Your perspective on this issue is important to make sure the State Senate finds solutions that work for all of us.
