9) Are there any changes that you would like to see made in relation to charter schools?
Republican - Dan Liljenquist:
With 30,000+ students on charter school waiting lists, I am in favor of expanding the reach of charter schools as fast as possible. I would like to see permanent funding mechanisms put in place for charter schools to ensure their ongoing success.
Democrat - Richard Watson:
When a new charter school is proposed, we would be better served if we take away the conflict-of-interests any legislator has when building a new school.
