Education

As a parent of two children educated in public schools, I have great faith in Kansas’ public education system. I see education as a partnership between teachers, parents, and communities and educating our next generation is a monumentally important task. There are always improvements to be made and accountability to be had. However, I also feel that both can be accomplished most efficiently at the state and local level by teachers and leaders who are most intimately aware of the challenges and successes of each specific child and school. While the intent of No Child Left Behind is an honorable one, I don’t believe a distant federal bureaucracy can best meet the individual needs of a child in Parsons or a middle school in Manhattan.
