Superintendent Few will operate under the commitment that parents are the first and best educator of their children. State policy must respect a parents’ right to direct the education and care of their children and prevent school districts from overstepping their authority.

Our state’s ability to be accountable to taxpayers has been undermined by federal intrusion, which Superintendent Few will strive to reverse. Top initiatives include:
