Democratic Schools' Chief Candidates Face-Off

Democrats Penny Kotterman and Jason Williams are battling for an opportunity to move on to the November election.

Penny Kotterman says she wants to set high standards and high expectation for our schools. Ms. Kotterman says education is a cooperative endeavor that asks much from students, teacher and parents. Ms. Kotterman wants to change the conversation about public education in Arizona to focus on schools as the center of our communities.

Jason Williams says the elections of 2010 will have a significant impact on Arizona's trajectory. As a state, Williams says we need to dramatically increase human capital and aggressively recruit talent to the public schools. He says we also need to implement innovative solutions to persistent problems and hold people and programs accountable for delivering on their promises of student achievement.
