We're diluting society when we lower standards for groups.

There are always excuses as to why someone didn't qualify.

Our educational system is a MESS! The only way to solve educational problems in our schools is to ALLOW the LOCAL ENTITY to solve problems, not some numbskull in Washington, DC!

Send educational funds in BLOCK GRANTS to EVERY STATE. Let that state divvy out the funds and let local officials resolve problems.

We, as a nation, have thrown BILLIONS toward education and the results are horrendous!

Allow parents to select schools they wish their children to attend. Give parents a CHOICE!

Let educational funds from Feds, State and Local municipalities to follow each child to a school of their choice: public, private, parochial, charter, virtual...let parents decide!
