Education Issues

As a former high-school civics teacher, John understands the challenges in America’s education system. While he supports the goals of No Child Left Behind, he also recognizes the program’s shortcomings.

John believes to compete in a global economy, America’s school system benefits from some federally-set standards while preserving local control of the curriculum. He also supports vouchers and federal support for charter and magnet schools.

With his first son now in college, John knows first hand the challenge American families face from rising tuition costs. That’s why he supports increasing Pell Grant funding, decreasing Stafford Loan interest rates, and establishing federal tax incentives to help families save for college.
