Every young person deserves to have access to a high-quality education that equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their full potential. And our educators are owed our gratitude, respect and most importantly the resources and support they need to set our students down a path to success.
Joe has a proven track record of delivering the resources and support our schools and students need to succeed.
