Alabama Board of Education, District 1
FOR THE COMMON GOOD
Every Alabama child and student deserves the opportunity to have
a free, appropriate and quality K-12 public school education.
All Alabama K-12 public schools deserve adequate state education funding. State education funding
should include considerable financial resources for every K-12 classroom teacher.
I oppose using state education funding to support private and for-profit charter schools
that do not meet the same accountability and regulatory standards
as traditional K-12 public schools, especially inclusion of students with disabilities.
Every Alabama K-12 student deserves excellent classroom teachers.
I support state policies to certify, recruit and retain the very best K-12 public school teachers at all levels.
Salaries and Benefits
Public school salaries and benefits must receive adequate state education funding
all K-12 public school personnel, including teachers, counselors, social workers, principals and support staff.
Public school transportation must be provided for all K-12 public school students who need it.
This transportation must meet the needs of all students, especially those in rural, suburban and urban areas.
