Access to quality education and training is a key to individual and national prosperity. Every American family should have the opportunity to select the best educational fit for their child’s needs.  I support school choice by allowing public education funds to follow students to the schools or services that best fit their needs. This may be a public school, private school, charter school, home school or other learning environment the parent chooses for their children. I also believe the federal student loan program should be modified so it doesn’t just subsidize colleges and universities, and also provides vocational options.

As a substitute teacher in the Clark County School District, I have taught at elementary and high school levels.  My daughter, son and two of my children’s spouses are CCSD teachers.  I have witnessed first hand, dedicated teachers who genuinely care about our children.  Lesly and I home-schooled two of our four children.  I strongly believe that decisions about educating our children should be made by parents or by people as close to parents as possible.  I do not think that bureaucrats in Washington DC should have any role in dictating education policy.

As your representative in Congress, I will sponsor legislation which gives Nevada families freedom and resources to pursue their education goals.
