Education

 

To build a stronger city, we must adequately fund our public schools, investing in our students, their teachers and their school communities.

Through our support of Proposition 1 last fall, we have shown our dedication to our children’s future, which we know is inexorably tied to our own.

We believe teachers should be able to give their students time and attention, and understand classroom size is directly tied to quality learning. We have seen the transformative power of individualized help for our students from tutors and mentors. We know that when our students feel valued and connected, they thrive.

Our continued commitment will only make our schools, and therefore our city’s future, brighter.
I will work hard on the city council to address Education by:

  • Partnering with SPS to integrate mentoring programs into K-8 and high schools.

  • Connecting SPS and local apprenticeship programs to encourage students to explore career options in traditional trades.

  • Grow relationships with public and private sector partners to offer opportunities to SPS students for career exploration field trips.
