Position Papers
The Whitehead Plan for Supporting and REBUILDING PUBLIC EDUCATION
Paul knows that children can't learn in unruly classrooms with 40 or more students. We must decrease class size, increase teacher's salaries, renovate decaying facilities, and offer more INDUSTRIAL ARTS/ TRADE-TECH classes for those students not going to college. As Assemblyman, Paul will initiate programs that give teachers the freedom to teach in well-equipped classrooms so that our students have the foundation for academic success.
We need Better SENIOR TRANSPORTATION Programs for our Senior Citizens
Reports have found that over half of non-drivers (65and older) stay at home on any given day because they have no transportation. How do Seniors get to the doctor, to houses of worship, to the grocery store, to see their friends? In many cases, they don't. They become isolated, often depressed.
