Lance stated, "I am focused on parents’ rights and will be their voice in a system which has sidelined them for so many years. I will not be distracted by other worthy issues but put my whole effort into making every child’s education a priority over an overly bureaucratic failing system. Finally, I want to do this so that my five public school students have an education they can be proud of when they have kids of their own."

Quote from the article - "In a Globe interview Wednesday, Christensen said another disturbing issue with Thurmond is that the current Schools Superintendent has 'ripped off' Christensen’s campaign platform and is using the positions as his own. 'The last three to four major proposals by Thurmond are lifted from my campaign website,' Christensen said. 'I’m flattered that these ideas are so popular that he has to take them as his own. But I’ve been listening to parents all along.' "

"Christensen can be counted on to use the bully pulpit to drive home the point that the education system must be centered on the interests of students first and foremost. Policywise, he supports ceding as much authority to local districts as possible, wants to create a chief parent advocate position in his office and vows to conduct 'Kids First' audits of the state department of education and the state’s education budget. That’s a start. We endorse him."

Quote from the article: “An educated populace is what the founders wanted,” Christensen said. “Ed Source reported last week that California is the worst state in literacy in the country. We read behind Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas. How is this possible – we are the richest state in the richest country in the world, and we can’t teach our kids to read.” “And worse, California parents aren’t even empowered to make education choices for their kids.”
