Proper education is the primary support for our future workforce. Nevertheless, school retention in District 27 continues to be one of the lowest in Miami-Dade. Consequently, my office will create an incentive-based program to promote school retention from high school to college.
LOWER STUDENT LOANS
The previously mentioned program will reduce the total amount of student loans the students will have to pay upon graduation. Therefore, this will create an incentive for students not to drop out of school. Additionally, it will reduce the interest on student loans.
NO INDOCTRINATION IN EDUCATION
No indoctrination of any kind should be permitted in schools. When we leave our children at school, we expect them free of any harm. In my opinion, children’s political indoctrination is another form of psychological child abuse. I will seek to pass legislation, which will prevent student indoctrination. This legislation will also make school districts liable for permitting political indoctrination in public schools.
EDUCATION & PROMOTION OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
My office will bring federal funds to promote entrepreneurship among students who finish a career and can’t find a job. We will implement a program that helps incentivize entrepreneurship from an early age among the youngest students.
LOWERING THE COST OF QUALITY EDUCATION
Additionally, my office will support a Federal coupon program similar to the one Florida has implemented. This will allow more low-income parents to send their children to the school of their choice. Moreover, the parents will not have to worry about the zip code where they live.
IMPROVING READING SKILLS
I support President Trump’s proposal to return the optional reading/studies of the Bible to public schools. Parents should be free to decide if they want their children to read the Bible or any other books. Whether they are religious or non-religious is irrelevant. What is important is for the children to engage in reading at least an hour per day at school. Reading will greatly benefit the children to develop better reading skills.
