Issue Position: Education
I believe that local education decisions should stay local. Parents and local school boards are best informed about their schools and are therefore best equipped to create school systems that they are proud of. I believe in relieving local school systems of federal mandates that burden educators with a one-size-fits-all approach to education. The federal government should not try to predict the problems faced by schools in Southeast Missouri, but should give teachers and local school officials the tools to better their schools.
