Investing in higher education
Sarah fought to allow qualifying community colleges to offer four-year degrees in nursing, applied science, applied technology, and early childhood development. This investment in our medical and science fields will alleviate workforce needs and provide an economic boost to the state.
Reduced testing and improved outcomes
Sarah is fighting to reduce the burdensome standardized testing regime that forces our teachers to “teach to a test.” Sarah also supports customized education paths to maximize positive outcomes for our students.
Local control and accountability
Sarah believes our teachers and parents know what’s best for our local schools. That’s why she supports local control for school districts, as well as improved local and state accountability systems.
Expanded access to high quality Pre-K
Sarah helped to pass the high quality pre-kindergarten grant program that allows Pre-K expansion throughout our state.
