I had to get good grades and do well in school - my mother was an assistant principal and my father was a teacher - and they took this very seriously.
I used to work at a school as a teacher's assistant, and my mom is a principal at an elementary school. I don't know, I think that's a pretty good life, teaching kids.
And thus did an Assistant Pig-Keeper become High King of Prydain.
I've focused on making sure we have talented teachers and principals in our schools through proposals like the GREAT Teachers and Principals Act and the Presidential Teachers Corps.
