Is Education Important?
There are many reasons why education is important. It's important not only to the students, but to society. Dr. Stein has investigated many aspects of education and is eager to discuss her plans with NC.
Dr. Rosemary Stein comes from a long line of teachers and educators.
Her first job was as a reading teacher in the private school that her mother owned in the Dominican Republic. Her family members include private school owners, district superintendents, a great aunt who wrote the curriculum for the Dominican Republic, and a great uncle who worked in the office of the Secretary of Education of the Dominican Republic. The education of children is the business of Rosemary's family.
Language Training in our Schools
Experience with Learning Multiple Languages
Dr. Rosemary Stein has lived and was educated in three different countries. She has received language immersion in the United States, the Dominican Republic, and Quebec, Canada. This helped her become fluent in three languages in less than one year each time due to the process of immersion. In North Carolina, our English as a Second Language program lasts over four years and does not get the kids back into the main classroom fast enough for the kids to keep up with their regular classes. Our program needs to change for the success of these children. We can also use immersion methods to increase the adoption of foreign languages with our kids.
The Status Quo is Hurting our Children
Dr. Rosemary Stein has spent the last 6 years learning how education is delivered in North Carolina. She has held positions as Alamance County Community College Trustee, a member of the board of directors of the North Carolina Partnership for Children (Smart Start), a member of the NC Superintendent's Graduation Task Force, and a member of the National Governor's Association Early Literacy Committee. These experiences provided her with the understanding of how education is delivered and how education is budgeted in our state.
A First Class Education
Do you feel like your child deserves better?
North Carolina public school children are not being given a first class education. Dr. Rosemary Stein would like to change that and move North Carolina to the top of education rankings in the country. In order for this to occur, we must have a new perspective on how we educate our kids. Dr. Stein asks all North Carolina parents, grandparents, and future parents to consider a new path for their children by electing her to the position of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
A Solid Curriculum
The Path to Success
Dr. Rosemary Stein has researched the method of reading instruction extensively. It is clear that we have changed from the proven Phonics reading instruction to the "Sight Word" method. This method is an element widely used to teach reading in Common Core. Common Core also uses a substandard method to instruct our kids in mathematics. Common Core is not a common set of standards, it is actually a curriculum that is failing to teach our children the fundamentals in mathematics and reading that are necessary for their future success.
The treatment for this is Classical Education.

My goal in running for Superintendent is to return North Carolina as the best State in America to educate children. To do this, I will attempt to accomplish two things:
Remove Common Core and return to the classical education model of Phonics and Mathematics instruction that made American students the best in the world when I was a child (we now rank 22 out of 23 developed countries). Classical Education really means education for First Class citizens. Our current education model has the effect of producing second class citizens.
It is equally important to engage parents in the education of their children. It has been shown that kids perform better in school if their parents are engaged in the learning process. I intend to assist parents and teachers to re-establish a strong Parent Teacher Association so that parents and teachers can again work together for the success of our children.
