One of the great things about knocking on the doors of voters is that I get to see so many of you that understand what is important. The other day I was talking to a woman that pointed out that we have such low expectations of people in this state. We have so many students that are not expected to read or do simple mathematics at grade level or do the academic work necessary to graduate. The lack of expectations for our children continues as they get older into adulthood. People should be expected to support themselves, do the right thing for their children, not live on the streets, and conduct themselves in a dignified manner. It is possible to do better if we expect to do better.
