Local decisions on education dollars, not federal

The responsibility of educating our youth lies first with parents and also with local school officials. Parents and local school boards know our children best and they should decide what should be taught and how our education dollars should be spent, not the federal government.

Nevertheless, there is a proper role for the federal government in education. The federal government can assist and partner with state and local school districts and provide support for needed educational objectives.
