“Previous administrations have wrongly forced states and schools to comply with federal whims and dictates for what our kids are taught. The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success.”This is a great idea. I've been working int he schools for the past 13 years and I have seen time and time again how federal whims and caprices have thrown schools into frustration and stresss. Sometimes it is something as small as interfering in theschool lunch menu.
Personally, I think that we should get back to Readin', Writin', and Rithmatic. Technology, of course, and every high school should have a shop class. Those simple basics have served our country well for many decades.
