EDUCATION

    I have reviewed many years of Alabama political campaign commercials and one thing never changes - the promise to improve Alabama education. Here we are in 2021 and according to the Alabama Policy Institute we rank dead last in K-12 education and 52nd in math behind Puerto Rico and the Department of Defense overseas schools. Empty promises from lifelong politicians have gotten us nowhere. It is time for a real change. My plan will not include throwing more money at a failed system or raising taxes. School voucher programs have proven to quickly lift states like Florida out of the bottom rankings. For the sake of our children it is time to do something different in Alabama and take government out of the education business.
