David knows America's future depends on improving the education of our children. We need to make our schools drug and violence free, establish incentives for teachers, and create partnerships involving parents, teachers, business and government.

He believes the fundamentals for improving education are: returning to more localized control of funding and programs

~ improving the teacher/student ratio at all grade levels

~ involving more parents in the education process

~ utilizing the school facilities more effectively

~ increasing per pupil funding

~ improving the structural reforms to insure the money is well spent

David's combination of education and business experience makes him qualified to help make the excellent quality of education in our district even better.

David J. Neighbors is committed to improving our public schools so every child receives a quality education and the skills necessary to be a successful, productive and involved citizen.
