I am a proud product of public education -from elementary school all the way through college- and will fight to make sure they are properly funded so we can tackle the serious issues of overcrowding, proper instructional equipment, and deteriorating buildings.

I do not think our students benefit by the Mayor having full control of our schools -via hand-picking the Chancellor and the majority of the members of the Panel for Education Policy- and as a member of the City Council, I will fight to change the governance system so there is true accountability.
