The pandemic made crystal clear that a one-size-fits-all education system is not the answer for North Carolina’s children and families. There has never been more interest or support for school choice. Children should be able to attend the school that best meets their needs…and families of all income levels should be empowered to explore all options — public, private, charter, and home schools.
All three of my children went to Wake County public schools. I recently became a substitute teacher with Wake County Public School System in order to learn more about the challenges our education system faces as well as to serve my community. My wife is a former elementary school teacher at Fuquay-Varina Elementary School. I support increasing teacher pay and improving our education system. I believe that if a child’s needs are not being met at his or her base public school, parents should have the ability and the means to find a better fit. I fully support Opportunity Scholarships, school choice, and educational freedom.
