Our kids deserve a quality education.
We need to ensure that our kids have the education they need to compete in a 21st Century economy. My three kids attended Salem-Keizer public schools and now my grandchildren are following in their footsteps.
We loved our kids’ schools and it is concerning to see the controversy that swirls around education, whether it’s funding, curriculum or the increasing pressure on schools to do more with less.
This should not be a debate about teachers vs. taxpayers. This is about making sure our kids have the best education we can give them. I believe that local control and local engagement is the best way to work our way through these issues, beginning with making sure that the money we spend is used effectively.
