Ensuring Every Child is a Graduate.

Tony adopted higher standards, better assessments and new student supports to ensure all kids are college and career ready. He will continue to work with parents, educators and legislators to set high standards and adopt innovative educational practices.

Standing up for Kids and Educators.

Tony fought back against historic budget cuts, opposing a back room deals that expanded school vouchers while cutting $1.6 billion from public schools. He will continue to push for adequate resources to ensure school reform does not become a code word for funding cuts.

Championing School Finance Reform.

Tony’s popular Fair Funding for Our Future plan would protect kids, invest in our classroooms, account for poverty, and lower the tax levy. Tony will re-introduce the plan as part of his 2013-15 Budget proposal.
