Pete Coors on Education

2004 former Republican Senate Challenger (CO)


Accountability and standards for public schools

Every child deserves a chance at a quality education. Denying the best education to a boy or a girl snuffs out the light of ambition in their eyes. We must help parents get the best education for their children. And we must do everything we can to help teachers do the job they are called to do. We have put into place accountability and standards in our public schools and I believe this is an important step toward improving our schools.

Supports school choice

“There isn’t an ideological difference between me and Bob,” says Coors, a convert to Catholicism who describes himself as a pro-lifer in favor of tax cuts, school choice, and free trade and opposed to the recent Medicare bill. He’s also an advocate of gun rights who used to appear in those “I’m the NRA” ads for the National Rifle Association.
