Q: Should illegal immigrants who graduate from Arkansas high schools be eligible for in-state tuition at public universities?
Westerman adds, "I support national education standards as long as they are the highest of quality and states have the right to accept or reject the standards. I do not support the current Common Core draft of national education standards which show some merit, but in general, are a watered down, middle of the road attempt at national standards."
