Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?
No. I don’t believe preschool should be mandatory. However, I do believe in providing vouchers so parents can opt out of public school and chose a different form of educational services for their children.
What is your one big idea?
Local school boards. I do not believe that bureaucrats in downtown Honolulu know more about the local schools than the principals, teachers and parents who interact daily with the students. We should put the power in their hands rather than forcing our school communities to fit into predetermined, universal policies.
