Education plays such a vital role in our society, ensuring that Americans are well prepared to enter the workforce. But our education system is not adequately preparing our children for their futures. I believe in school choice and putting the students and their education first. We should allow families to choose the school that works best for their student: whether it be traditional public schools, public charter schools, virtual schools, private schools, or home schooling. School choice is about freedom, competition, and improving education for all children.
Additionally, college is becoming too expensive for working class families and not giving students the skills they need to succeed. A 4-year degree is the right choice for a lot of people, but it should not be the only choice. We need to promote vocational training and apprenticeship programs that give workers the skills that industries actually need.
