Bart Baron on Education

Republican Senate Challenger


Rethink elementary & secondary education

It's time to rethink elementary & secondary education.
  1. We must insist that all high schools, nationally, adopt a core course program
  2. We must consider a program similar to the New York State Regents Exams
  3. We must find a way to utilize retired subject matter experts as teachers
  4. We must provide a safe environment
  5. We must test teachers as to subject matter knowledge in classes that they teach
  6. We must revise the ratio of administrative positions to full-time teacher positions. Source: Campaign website, www.bartbaron.com, "Issues" Mar 9, 2008
