My Vision for Education
I believe that a person’s future is not determined by demographics. Instead, through hard work, perseverance, and striving for excellence, a person can do great things. We should not only teach these principles in school, but we should work to bridge the gap, so that all students are afforded the same opportunity to reach their potential.
I am a Chinese immigrant who realized the American Dream with the help of strong public education. I’m proud to be an American, and I want school children to feel that same pride by learning history from an unbiased account. I will fight to bring civics, US and world history back to the classrooms, void of political agenda. It’s time to stop dividing us by ethnicity, and to start uniting us with truth and knowledge.
Right now, there are schools in Wake County shutting parents out of the school buildings, blocking them from volunteering in their children’s classrooms. There is no curriculum transparency, and questionable coursework is being assigned without parental knowledge. We as parents know what is the best for our children, so we should have a say in what they learn. I will help bring parents and teachers together to fulfill a common mission – to give the children of Wake County the best chance to succeed.
