Education: For the past two years, I have served on the Education Subcommittee in Ways and Means. I am very proud of my input on the school safety bill that we passed this year. Our children's safety is of paramount importance. This legislation will ensure that each school will have a School Resource Officer or other law enforcement officer inside our schools. This bill provides resources for school safety measures, training, school counselors and hiring of the personnel needed for this critical reform. In addition, I have been monitoring the Kirwan Commission as it continues to work on funding and education reforms. It is vitally important that we as parents and taxpayers see a true return on the investments we have made so far and for the future. I will continue to advocate for more opportunities in the areas of computer science, programming and related STEM fields. I believe in teaching our children useful skills to help them get a job. I will continue to support education in the trades and expanding apprenticeship opportunities so that our children will be equipped to be successful in the workplace. We need more local control and flexibility on education decisions.
