“I support and respect teachers, but I think our next U.S. senator has to be in favor of high standards, choice and accountability in public education. That means testing, charter schools and reforms that make it easier to weed out bad teachers and reward the good ones. That is my education platform and I pledge that as the next U.S. senator from Massachusetts I will put the interests of kids first.”

"I support high standards, testing and accountability. In reauthorizing NCLB, I would look to make sure we maintain high standards while at the same time providing the resources necessary to implement them."
