Students deserve the best teachers to succeed, for themselves, and so Alaska can have a strong economy. Our plan to restore education as a top priority again is based my long record of listening, and supporting strong education solutions. I’m proud of a record of pushing the legislation our education leaders and our law enforcement officials say we need, and that I’ll pass as Governor.
We could have avoided today’s education crisis of lost teachers, decreased language, arts, music and other courses, and closed schools in some communities. Jessica Cook, a Palmer education leader and educator, will be a crucial asset in helping us restore Alaska’s schools.
