OUR KEIKI. OUR FUTURE.
Our children deserve a prosperous future. Too often, though, our keiki are placed in overcrowded and overheated classrooms, given harmful amounts of standardized testing, and denied the support services they need to thrive. Teachers tirelessly guide our children's learning without receiving the professional pay they've earned and deserve.
To ensure our children receive a quality education, I will sponsor legislation to build community schools that offer arts courses, vocational training, and access to social services on campus. I will also work to limit standardized testing and empower teachers to use authentic assessments aligned to real-world learning experiences. Finally, I will support the creation of a dedicated funding source for education to increase our state's investment in our children's future.
