Chase Oliver on Education



Empower parents & students instead of federal involvement

EMPOWER PARENTS & STUDENTS IN EDUCATION: At the federal level, the best policy on education is to remove the federal government's involvement in education. I support abolishing the Department of Education and block granting those funds back to states to be returned to taxpayers. I also support getting the government out of the student loan business so market forces can lower the cost of higher education over time.

Let schools & parents decide on LGBTQ books in libraries

On "Don't Say Gay" bills such as in Florida, Oliver said school choice--a system wherein money follows the pupil, rather than everyone paying for public education--could give parents options in states with anti-LGBTQ school policies.

"I'm somebody who wants to have inclusive education that focuses on critical thinking and age-appropriate curriculum, and I think we can certainly have that while being inclusive to LGBTQ people and families," he said. "Personally I think it's important to acknowledge LGBTQ people exist. I believe personally, in my personal opinion, that should fall under the role of education--but as a candidate for president, ultimately parents and students should decide where to send their education dollars."

When it comes to books about LGBTQ people or with LGBTQ themes being allowed in school libraries, Oliver said that's a decision best left to the schools and parents themselves. Competition from private schools may cause public schools to reassess.
