Jason understands that education is the foundation of our children’s success, especially since his children attend public school in Giles county. Yet too many students in Southwest Virginia have received unequal treatment because politicians and bureaucrats have sided with their friends and special interests in Richmond and Northern Virginia. Jason’s educational priorities are bolstering smart investment in the 12th District, fighting for increased funding for public education combined with local control of educational funding from the state, and pushing for school choice options. In addition, Jason will focus on ensuring our children are well prepared for the future as they move to higher education institutions, as well as advocate for more post-secondary education options like vocational training and trade school options.
