What efforts would you make to assure that the local and state taxes following students, in the form of EdChoice vouchers, results in quality education?
Although it is impossible to assure the best outcomes, monitoring results and advising friends in the Legislature of needed changes is the best way to see that taxpayer expenditures bring about positive results.
What is your own experience with public education as a student, parent, and/or educator?
I am the product of public education, attending Marlington schools grades 1-12 and Kent State University. All of our children attended and graduated from Marlington schools grades k-12. Public education served all of us very well, we are all well rounded productive members of society.
