We need education that is protective of children’s hearts, minds and bodies, in line with the will of parents, and mindful of the resources provided by taxpayers.
Decision making power
Local school boards, with input from their constituents, need to be given more power to make decisions for their schools.
The academic achievement of students needs to be improved. To do this we need to identify practices which lead to high performance and then do what we can to implement them in all Nebraska schools.
Protection of our students' hearts, minds, and bodies
We need to be vigilant in regards to the content of the curriculum used in our schools.
Need to recruit high quality individuals to the teaching profession, and once hired, work to retain them. Also need to secure quality substitute teachers.
Financial resources provided by taxpayers
Taxpayers need to be assured schools and governing entities are spending money in a responsible manner.
