2018 Hart Vision Elected Official of the Year: Senator Scott Wiener


I want to thank the California
Charter Schools Association for this very high honor,
The Hart Vision Award. I’m really just thrilled to
be able to work with CCSA and with the charter school community to improve public education
in California, to make sure that all children no
matter where they live, no matter what their circumstances, have access to a high quality education. We have so much work to do to improve public education in California. To invest more, California
should not be near the bottom among the 50 states in per pupil spending. To make sure we’re paying
our teachers what they need to survive and to be the great
professionals that we know that they are. And to just make sure we’re
supporting our students and their families. And making sure that
people have the ability to access a school that works for them. We know that a one size fits
all approach doesn’t work. And that we want a diversity
of schools in our community. So again, thank you for this honor. I’m sorry that I can’t be
there with you physically, I’m there in spirit, and I look forward to
continuing to work together.
