Jay Ashcroft on Education



Our kids our deluged with inappropriate content

It is more difficult than ever to shield young children from material and images that would've been put behind the counter at the Kum & Go just a few years ago. Our kids our deluged with inappropriate content on television, on the internet, in social media, and throughout our culture.

For parents of young kids, it is a struggle to navigate an increasingly complicated and morally relative society and instill the values we were raised with in a culture that no longer appreciates those values.

Implemented rules to protect children from obscene content

With oversight over the state's libraries and archives, Jay implemented new rules to protect children from obscene content. He also oversees the securities industry and established new rules requiring banks to notify customers when they invest in ESG products as part of their political agenda.

School choice would be a priority of his administration

Ashcroft said school choice would be a priority of his administration. While Parson signed into law the state's limited tax credit education voucher program, school choice advocates want to go further with proposals for open enrollment and expansion of vouchers. "Using that bully pulpit, I can affect the education issue," Ashcroft said. "Maybe for the first time in my lifetime, we'll be able to say that every child in this state actually does have an opportunity to get a challenging education."
