Making sure people have the ability to succeed starts with quality pre-school, successful elementary and high school programs, and making technical/vocational certification or a college degree within reach of everyone.  Unfortunately, not every school is treated equally.  Every child deserves the best possible education in a public school that is fully funded, offers quality instruction and has the tools necessary.
