Strengthening the family will strengthen our state as a whole. I want families to flourish and children to have every possible opportunity to excel. Parents have a right and responsibility to determine what is best for their children. Parents and legal guardians are the ones who are closest emotionally, mentally, and spiritually to their children and the most in tune with their needs. As such, parents should have the protected ability to direct and give guidance concerning their children's educational experience and how they will be raised, even when they are in the public schools. I believe that a parental rights bill should also be passed in Delaware. Parents are almost always the best protection that a child has in this world. I will fight to protect the rights of parents to strengthen families and build a brighter Delaware.
