“Education is the cornerstone to success in today’s society, whether it be in the classroom or through training. We must have a quality public education system to create a competitive workforce that encourages economic development in our state. To do this, the Legislature must provide our public schools a steady, predictable and adequate amount of yearly funding and stop passing the responsibility on to our local home and business owners to make up the shortfall.”
~ GREG HOLCOMB
