I believe that education is a building block for a good quality of life, that we all win when a child succeeds in school. I believe that the success and vitality of our community depends on how well we educate our children today.
I believe that every child deserves great schools and great teachers, but they alone are not enough. I believe it also takes strong families, a stable home life, good health, and supportive communities.
I believe that high school dropouts are years in the making and that early intervention is the key to success. I want every child in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region to enter school ready to learn, read proficiently by 4th grade, make successful transitions to middle school and to high school, and graduate from high school on time.
I believe in the power of parents and family members, teachers, students, businesses, human service systems, civic associations, faith-based organizations, elected officials, and members of the community, working together for the common good.
I believe in making choices based on sound research.
I believe the time to stand up and LIVE UNITED for Education is now - for our kids, our community and our country.
Therefore, I raise my hand for education in support of our community's efforts to ensure that all children grow into successful adults.
