Brian Moore on Education

Socialist nominee for President


Too much emphasis on high tech in classrooms

I am concerned about schools' overemphasis on high technology equipment in classrooms. Children are spending too much time on television, play stations, gameboys, internet games, etc. They are becoming dependent on being entertained, as opposed to using time for physical activity, intellectual projects, use of hands and mind, leisure time for imagination, etc.

Fully fund libraries & museums to preserve culture

We want to emphasize arts and culture; plus creative use of leisure time. We encourage understanding of heritage programs. We encourage full funding for libraries, cultural centers, school arts programs, museums and historic sites. We call for the preservation of literature, oral traditions & audio & video recordings from people's experiences. We need to advance art centers, independent media, theaters, & festivals to advance cultural endeavors as music, poetry, drama, storytelling, & video

Full and equal funding of public education

We call for the full and equal funding of public education; for the restoration of a comprehensive K-12 curriculum, including art, music, world languages, sports programs and physical education. We call for an end to all public funding of private schools. We support local school/community committees and participation of student representation on school boards, and these boards be fully accountable to students, parents, teachers and school workers.
