Ryan Zinke on Education

 

 


Give parents a stronger voice, and local control

I firmly believe that in order to reform education policies, we must ensure more local control of our schools and giving parents a stronger voice. Parents strive to provide the very best for their children, as such they deserve the opportunity to seek great teachers and schools that will help to prepare students for tomorrow's job market. Furthermore I strongly support innovation through the use of classroom technology, performance based curriculum, and quality instruction.
