Quotes by Dr. Ken Williams

Current evidence shows that when parents are extensively involved in their children's education, scholastic achievement can greatly improve.
To restore student safety, I believe that public schools need the presence of caring, no-nonsense school administrators who can restore a wholesome respect for authority, as well as more structure and influence in the classroom established at younger grade levels.
