Mia Love on Education

 

 


Local & parental control over schools, not federal

As a mother with three children enrolled in public schools, education is extremely important to me. American families want better quality education, lower education costs, and more local control over decisions related to education. In recent years the US Department of Education has expanded the federal role in education to unprecedented levels. Utah--not the federal government--knows what is best for Utah's student. I trust Utah teachers & parents over Washington bureaucrats. These are my proposals to address the problems surrounding education:

Disbanding the federal Department of Education

Love's proposed budget cuts would sap more than $100 million in federal funds to public education in Utah, including more than $38 million in special-education grants; nearly $21 million in grants to low-income Title I schools; and millions more for other programs.

Love has previously proposed disbanding the U.S. Department of Education and turning programs over to the states. How much would Mia Love's budget save?
