Republican Curtis Coleman presenting his education plan Wednesday called "Arkansas at the Head of the Class." It touches on how to make the state more prosperous, starting with education.
Coleman has based his plan on four points:
Let teachers teach, let parents choose, let schools live and let students succeed.
"What we want to do is revive Arkansas' economy by dramatically restoring Arkansas' educational abilities. Because the fact is, good jobs require a good education. and we have a critical skill labor shortage in Arkansas now," Coleman said.
One thing the candidate wants to see changed is the pressure for students to attend 4-year universities.
Instead he'd increase support for trade schools and community colleges like NWACC to better equip students to land available jobs.
