Providing an opportunity for our children to be educated in great schools is key to a successful future. As the husband of a public school teacher and the father of three students, I am continually aware of the value of a good education, both for individuals and for our nation. A well trained workforce is key to our economic success and global competitiveness, especially in the ever-changing world of the 21st Century.

I believe that our top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to education has not served us well. Parents, teachers, principals, and local school boards know their students and schools better that politicians and bureaucrats in Washington, so I am committed to returning more authority and control to parents and to local and state school boards. We need to free educators to educate, give parents more control over their children’s education, and allow states and districts to tailor their educational models to meet the needs of their communities, including through technical education and trade schools.

But I would like to hear your opinion about the amount of funding and control over education that the federal government should have. Let me know what you think!
