Rural Schools Are Important

We must empower parents and allow teachers the freedom to teach without unending interference from politicians.  I believe that parents, local schools and teachers, not the state, are the best decision-makers when it comes to education.  In short, we need more local control.  We know what is best for our communities and school districts.  As your Representative, I will also push for equal funding for rural schools, because when our schools struggle, our communities and children suffer.  As a father of two young girls, and one whose family includes a long list of teachers, education and schools are of high importance to me
