Children deserve high-quality education at all levels of our educational system. This means discipline and high standards in classrooms, charter schools and private schools to encourage competition and accountability, and proper resources for technical schools. As the father of four, including two still in elementary or secondary schools, Andrew Thomas strongly opposes Common Core and has made this position clear throughout his campaign.
Higher education is failing us. A majority of college graduates cannot get full-time jobs in their area of study after receiving their degree. Andrew Thomas will provide the tough leadership needed to reform higher education and ensure positive outcomes for college graduates. This means holding accountable the college bureaucracies that profit from large student enrollments but too often graduate their students to joblessness.
