As a member of the Education and Workforce Committee, I hope to enact policies that continue driving education decisions back to the state and local level, closer to our students. In the 21st century we must offer our students new pathways to success. This means investing in innovative educational and technical opportunities, beginning in elementary and high school, to effectively transition students to a career or post-secondary education. By preparing young people with the skills to succeed in our modern economy, we will ensure better opportunities for all to advance up the socioeconomic ladder.
