Improving our schools

We need an education moonshot. What we have is a half-hearted slingshot.

The current budget offers pay raises to teachers they should have received under Nikki Haley. So we are already ten years late. And pay raises, while essential, are only one part of the solution.

They also need the resources and support needed to insure a safe, strong, and creative learning environment. Our schools are underfunded, our curriculums are choked by uninformed and half-hearted laws written by legislators with personal agendas and no education experience.

I want to recruit good teachers, retain them for long careers, and then make sure they have a secure retirement. I want to highlight and support exceptional students, making sure they are ready to succeed.
