Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
Yes. Preschool systems adopted in other states include publicly funded private and public preschools. The state should develop a robust system of high-quality preschools that taps and builds upon our already solid network of preschools in this state.
What is your one big idea?
School-based, co-located delivery of health care services has the potential to achieve better access to healthcare, particularly in rural areas. I would task the Departments of Health, Human Services, and Education to develop and execute a five-year plan that results in demonstration projects that can be scaled throughout the state.
