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

No. I believe in early education but the parents should be involved with making the decision of either sending their child to preschool or not. Kindergarten is sufficient enough. Preschool should not be mandatory.

What is your one big idea?

Restore leadership (Principal). Only the principal and teacher knows what the students’ needs are. The growth of our students is far more important than repetitive teacher evaluations. The educators are not to blame. Students make choices too. The politics have found its way down affecting both teacher and students performance.
