Quote: “I believe it is important that children receive the finest education possible. Having systems in place that begin in Early Childhood programs and continue through high school that promote a love of learning for children, affording them the best of opportunities and possibilities to fulfill their dreams is the primary goal of public education. It is our duty as parents and community members to ensure that these systems are prudent and maintained for our children and our children’s children.”
