Pence will fight for kids

As a retired teacher, Donna Pence has the right background to help our schools in District 25 continue to prepare for the future. Donna agrees that the cuts to education were too severe and she will fight for commonsense solutions to ensure that our students get the quality education they deserve.

Donna's relationships with educators in the 10 public school districts in our region will help her get things done for our youth. She is involved with Idaho Education Network, which provides the connectivity that brings in the online and virtual class offerings to schools throughout our state. It enables our rural school districts to offer a variety of advanced course opportunities. This will help students in rural areas get the same level of education as students in larger school districts.

Donna will continue to work on bringing more technical training programs to our high schools and linking those programs with community colleges like CSI to prepare students for good jobs. As an educator, Donna understands the various needs of the classroom and supports a well-rounded education for all students in all districts in Idaho. She promotes improved efficiency throughout our small to mid-sized school districts through shared services.

During her time in the Legislature, Donna served on the Idaho State School for the Deaf and Blind Study Committee. She studied the structure of the school and helped make the determination about where it should be located.

Donna has the experience and training as an educator to continue to fight for the right combination of opportunities for our kids. Our kids are too precious to cut corners on their futures. Please support Donna Pence this November.
