I Have Taken the Red for Ed Pledge
I understand that to be an influential and effective representative for EDUCATION in the AZ legislature, I must represent the interests of teachers, students, parents and staff, ahead of all others, including those of my own.
The fight will be for better compensation and classroom support for teachers, socially representative governance of the schools, the return to learning basics-reading, writing, arithmetic, and comprehensive incorporation of technology.
Considering the challenging Covid 19 environment, the need for comprehensive access to technology for all students is urgent. The fight will be staged to increase state funding, without increasing taxes to individuals.
There will also be a search to Identify and propose legislation to make higher education accessible and affordable (without extensive debt) for AZ residents.
