    America’s government schools have a public, not private, purpose. This public purpose, in our democratic republic, is to prepare and graduate students who can practice critical self-government, and vote for enlightened representatives. The issue is not charters vs. traditional public schools, but that both carry out their civic function to create citizens.

    The city needs to focus on making sure all its residents have access to quality pre-k education and local public schools. There are some great public schools in the Indianapolis area and we need to take what is working and apply it to schools that need opportunities. I want to involve more teachers in the process of determining if and how charter schools are developed.

    I support choice on an equal playing field. The system we have now, however, is tilted against public schools. We also must be more careful with the idea of quantity over quality. Our traditional public schools should be of high quality, but so should charter options. I would scrutinize details about new charter schools before voting to approve them. Strongly against voucher programs.

    Ruckelshaus believes in strong public schools while at the same time making sure parents have choices with education. Charter schools, vouchers,virtual schools are but just a piece of the choice matrix that Hoosier parents need to make the best choices for their children. Ruckelshaus knows that like in business, one size doesn't fit all.
