Many of the services provided by the County School Board are duplicated by other public and private agencies. The board must evaluate the successes and implement the standards that are proven and more efficient.

As a candidate running for Harris County School Board, I hope to have the opportunity to grant access to fair and equitable funding. I aim to increase community involvement. Promote student accountability aside from standardized testing. Prioritize Bi-lingual education that helps students learn to speak, write, and read English without sacrificing other academic progress. Promote an increase in parental input in the evaluation process of educators. Also, I will continue to support superior programs, especially those that take into account the needs of individual pupils. Lastly, I hope to successfully facilitate access to school choice.
The role of the County School Board is to facilitate and promote superior programs and resources regardless of the educational level.
I strongly believe in the Head Start program. It offers those children and families that otherwise are not able to receive the readiness skills for school the opportunity to do so. CASE (Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment) for Kids is also an incredibly valuable service provided by the County Board of Education. And lastly, I support the continued push for better student-to-teacher ratios for all students.
