"Our public schools and community colleges are a source of hope for our students, their families, and our communities. I am committed to see that every student in Alabama has the opportunity to receive an excellent education. It is crucial that your State Board of Education maintain its high expectations, while working with the Governor and the legislature to see that our students and teachers have the necessary resources they need to succeed. I have been in the business of protecting life for over thirty years, and I believe that lives are at stake every day in our schools. The future of Alabama's students, their families, and generations yet to come is very much in our hands."
