Ed O`Reilly on Education
Democratic Senate Challenger
Q: What about charter schools?
A: I like the concept, but am concerned about the impact on public education in the sense of charter schools only picking the “cream off the top” in some cases and being able to discharge the students they don’t want.
Q: What about posting the Ten Commandments?
I am concerned about the process by which our tax dollars go through Washington to fund education on the local level. The farther we move educational planning and policy away from classroom teachers, the less the positive impact upon students. We don’t need unfunded mandates and edicts from Washington to our local schools
