The federal government has no business trying to control public education. I support the complete and total rejection of federal funding for education, along with the rejection of any nationally standardized curriculum. I support the nullification of No Child Left Behind, until such time that it is repealed by the U.S. Congress.
I believe we should explore "school choice" solutions, as well as ways to increase competition in education. Parents and teachers, not politicians and bureaucrats, should manage the education of children in their own communities. I support local decision-making with regard to school systems.
It is imperative that we eliminate barriers to choice in education. No student should be forced to attend a school where basic individual rights, common sense, and dignity are checked at the door.
