Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?

Education is my first priority. As a parent I understand the difficulties we face with access to preschool. Public money being spent on private preschool does not go far enough to provide this access, I think as a state we need to have public preschool available to everyone.

What is your one big idea?

By investing in our children’s education throughout their lives we help secure and diversify our state’s future. We need to make sure that they are cared for the best we can, and this starts by making sure their education is the best that we can provide.
