State funding for charters and vouchers

Q: Do you support the national Common Core State Standards initiative?

A: No. Federal government needs to get out of our state educational systems... i.e. unfunded mandates.

Q: Do you support a merit pay system for teachers?

A: Yes.

Q: Is the tenure process for public school teachers producing effective teachers?

A: No. Tenure has little to do with effective teaching.

Q: Should parents be allowed to use vouchers to send their children to any school?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support state funding for charter schools?

A: No.

Q: Do you support the state government providing college students with financial aid?

A: No. Promise scholarship is already available... any more than status quo... NO.
