"I've put more money into education than any other governor before me. We're gonna continue to do that. We're gonna continue to challenge our rural schools." said Governor Stitt. "I passed the Redbud funding that specifically gives more money to rural schools. So all those things are going to continue, but we're gonna empower parents. We're gonna put more competition and make sure every rural kid has the opportunity for AP classes and more opportunities."
