The quality of the education received should not be determined by your zip code, and as such, parents should have choices in their children’s education. Whether that decision is a public school, a private school, or a home education, it is imperative for politicians and bureaucrats to understand that Washington shouldn’t determine your child’s education but rather the parents determine their children’s’ education. Federal programs such as Common Core that dictate education standards from the Federal Government have no place in the equation of local education.
