The best way for the next mayor to improve education in San Diego is to make educated decisions based on reality and good ideas. The mayor should be an example of how a well-educated person acts. The mayor's staff should include scholars. The mayor should be a source of basic research on solutions for the city's problems. The mayor should show an understanding of financial management by getting the audits out on time. The mayor should do important parts of needed research and writing. Abraham Lincoln was busy with the Civil War but still managed to write his own speeches. If the mayor wants to change education in San Diego, begin by bringing education to the mayor's office.
