Lincoln Almond on Education

Former Republican RI Governor


Measure school performance and report to parents

Look how far we’ve come. We’ve placed an emphasis on early childhood initiatives to ensure that all kids enter school ready to learn. We’ve raised standards and accountability. Through Information Works, we’re collecting data on every single school in our state so parents will know exactly how their child’s school performs. And we have a system in place to intervene in situations where schools aren’t measuring up.

Lincoln Almond on School Choice

We will not tolerate failing schools

We have a system in place to intervene in situations where schools aren’t measuring up. Let’s make one thing crystal clear. For children to succeed, they must have a good education. Therefore, we will not tolerate failing schools. We expect results; otherwise, there will be consequences.
