Only parents know what’s best for their children – not the government.

That’s why in the NC Senate, I’ve fought for more school choice and more transparency by school boards. They should be made up of parents, not bureaucrats.

School choice is about empowering parents to decide how and when their children receive their education, regardless of background or ZIP code.

Parents also deserve to know what their children are being taught. In the NC Senate, I've stood against the Democrats forcing mandates, school closures and the teaching of radical Critical Race Theory on our children.

I will continue to fight for the rights of parents and students, and to encourage WNC parents to speak up and get involved.
