God

  • "Should be our guide in making decisions for the welfare of our community and government."

Legislative Proposal

  • "Voters within a school district should have the right to vote on whether or not to allow prayer in their public schools."

Public Education

  • "Public schools should have less emphasis on testing and more of a focus on education and discipline."

Legislative Proposals
