Phoenix – Former Congressman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon today released a new policy paper outlining how he plans to further strengthen Arizona’s schools for children, parents, and teachers through meaningful accountability and educational freedom. The policy paper will provide the foundation for Salmon’s educational agenda as Arizona’s next governor.
Now is the time for Arizona to pursue ambitious public policies that will create a system of educational excellence and guarantee that students receive the education we know they deserve. The last two years demonstrated the overwhelming importance of keeping schools open for in-person instruction and ensuring parents are aware of what is being taught inside of their children’s classrooms. I am committed to protecting parents’ rights to engage with their local school boards without fear of intimidation and empowering every family in the state with educational freedom whenever they choose and for whatever reason. As Arizona’s next governor, I promise to do everything in my power to stop Critical Race Theory’s grotesque politicization of our classrooms and refocus school curricula on core competencies, namely math, science and civics, which will prepare students for the future,” said Salmon.
