What will define Virginia's future, Beyer says, is the state's commitment to education.
His plan includes adding one thousand teachers, raising salaries to the national average, strengthening requirements for teacher certification, and providing one- time grants to high school graduates with a b- average.
If the voters consider education, the environment, and economic development across the commonwealth, Beyer says their choice will be clear.
