An old song got it right when it penned, “I believe the children are our future.”

Rep. Laurel Libby knows that children are our future, and that education can never be “one size fits all.” One size fits all doesn’t work well in a t-shirt, and it certainly doesn’t work in education.

Public schools work well for some, but not all, and parents should be able to pursue the model of education that best fits their individual child’s needs.

We saw this demonstrated during COVID. Some children thrived with virtual or hybrid learning, while others floundered and lost critical ground in their education. Parents should be in the driver’s seat of their child’s education.

Rep. Libby supports the parent’s right to determine their child’s education. If children truly are our future, we need to elect Rep. Laurel Libby for a second term.
