Joe Garcia on Education
Every American should have the opportunity to receive a quality public education from pre-K through university at a cost that isn't restrictive. We must also preserve and improve on the quality of education and of our teachers by funding our schools better, including construction for smaller class sizes, and fully funding Title I and the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
It is also important to focus on what we are teaching our kids: it is imperative that we prepare our children for their future, not for a specific test. We need accountability and innovation, but penalizing teachers is not the solution. In 2010, Joe stood with teachers and students to oppose Florida Senate Bill 6, the worst anti-teacher piece of legislation in our state's history.
