VOICE FOR THE VALLEY.
As a former public school teacher, David has seen firsthand how current federal public education policies are failing to adequately prepare our children for life outside the classroom.
David believes that the answer to fixing American schools should not come from the federal government, but rather from local communities, school boards, and state departments of education.
David affirms that the federal government can and should provide funding for education, but the decisions on how to utilize that funding should be left to the local and state governments that have a better understanding of the educational needs of their students.
Furthermore, David believes the federal government should not be in the business of indoctrinating our children with an ideological based curriculum and opposes initiatives like Critical Race Theory and the New York Times sponsored 1619 Project. Classrooms should promote and encourage individual thought and debate rather than stifle it.
Finally, the most efficient path to curbing the influence of teachers' unions and restoring America's schools to prominence is through School Choice. No child should be forced to attend a failing school simply because of where they live. Unfettered access to quality education will provide millions of children with the opportunity to escape poverty. School choice will benefit students who need our help the most. School Choice does not "steal" money from local school districts. That money was always child specific. They are your tax dollars and should follow your child to the school that will best fit their needs.
