What is the purpose of education?

The answer is simple:

To give our children the tools they need to realize their full potential.

To enable students to compete in a hyper-competitive global marketplace.

To prepare America to remain the sole global superpower.

But our public schools are not setting up our children for success. By every metric, California’s students are trailing America’s, not to mention China’s.

This doesn’t seem to bother our politicians, for some reason.

Evidently, they do not prioritize the success of our schools or students.

I will fight to make sure that parents have the educational options they need to ensure a better future for their children.

And I will work to provide our public schools with all the resources they need to give students the education they deserve.


America remains the land of opportunity. But for how much longer? Our leaders dismiss the problems of working Americans, ignore rising prices, and crush businesses with higher taxes and nonsensical regulations.


We have more than enough technology and resources to fuel our economy with renewable energy. The only thing missing is leadership — we need doers, not talkers.
