David Rouzer on Education

 

 


Put control of education in the hands of local parents

I believe that control of education needs to be in the hands of parents, teachers and principals at the local level. The federal government should get out of the way and let the states do what is best for their local school officials so that every child receives a quality education with more focus on classroom needs and a structure that rewards excellence in teaching.

From a personal standpoint, I believe we should return to the fundamentals of learning with a focus on critical thinking rather than the reciting of facts and figures that are forgotten soon after the test. If a student has learned how to learn and can think through issues and problems thoroughly, couple that with personal initiative and they will be able to achieve anything. Parental involvement is absolutely critical to success.
