Do what is necessary to ensure children can read by third grade, including:

  • Reduce class size in K-3
  • Support teacher continuing education
  • Improve early childhood education
  • Assure full-day kindergarten
  • Involve parents and other citizens in the reading program

We also need to:

  • Stabilize education funding across economic cycles
  • Reduce high school dropout rate and increase number going to college
  • Increase science, technology, and engineering output of higher education
