Stephen Noble Smith on Education

 

 


Create 100 public "Entrepreneurial Schools"

We will broadly invest in public education so our kids get the support they need to become productive, creative worker. Specifically, we'll also train up a generation of entrepreneurs. EntreEd, the nation's leading entrepreneurship education program, was founded in West Virginia. We will work with EntreEd, educators, small business owners, and private foundations to set the goal of making 100 West Virginia public schools certified as "America's Entrepreneurial Schools" in the next 5 years.

Index pay for teachers and tie it to inflation

We must index pay for West Virginia teachers, substitutes, and school service personnel to our highest-paying neighbors and tie that payscale to inflation. Include competitive benefits for professional and service personnel including low or no co-pay healthcare, mental health services at 100% coverage, and affordable dental/vision insurance for every public school employee. Give retired teachers and school service personnel cost-of-living raises tied to inflation.

Support technical education & apprenticeship programs

Making West Virginia the best place in the country for technical education by funding all higher education (apprenticeships, colleges, technical college, certificates), encouraging expansion of Simulated Workplace, and developing flagship career education and "early college" programs that unite high schools, technical colleges, and apprenticeship programs to give West Virginia students a leg up when it comes to access to technical education.
