One day during an Education Committee meeting, a young man stood and shared a story about how his education savings account (ESA) allowed him to change his educational opportunities. He told us that his ESA would allow him to be the first one in his family to go to college. Stories like this are why I am so motivated to keep improving education in Arizona.
We are educating individual children who are unique in their development, personality, and goals. For this reason, I support all choices in education: District schools, Charter schools, ESA Scholarships, and home schooling.
As current Chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee, I have fought to provide Arizona schools with over $1.5 billion. Teachers are the heart of our educational system, and that is why I voted for the historic funding increase for our teacher’s salaries and ran legislation to support teachers in their educational development. I have received numerous awards regarding my support for education among them the, Arizona Parents for Education -Golden Apple award and A for Arizona, Trailblazer Award.
The children of Arizona are our future, and education creates their future!
