The House of Representatives have submitted more than one bill to eliminate the Department of Education. It should be no surprise that the current administration is against support of public schools.
We need to ensure that we have strong public schools moving forward and must accept that there will be increasing challenges to making this a reality. We are a great nation with a strong economy because we have an outstanding public education system.
David will work to ensure that we make the most of the shrinking resources the district is going to have.

President Trump's 2018 budget proposal
Today, President Trump released his blueprint for the FY2018 budget. Just a cursory look at it indicates that there is a disregard for public education.
The Department of Education is going to have approximately $9b less allocated, a 14% decrease. Of the remaining budget approximately $1.4b more is going to "school choice" which has been shown to be ineffective.
It is more important than ever to have someone on our school board that is able to cut costs while not losing ground on our education priorities. If elected, David brings the skills necessary to help our public schools though these difficult times.

This is a huge problem for school budgets going forward. We need to address the near term budget issues and make public schools more attractive so students don't leave. Public schools are a cornerstone of our way of life and need to be protected funding like infrastructure and military spending.
