John Featherman on Education

2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (PA)


Tax credits for students at non-public schools

Vouchers harm public schools and should be banned in favor of tax credits for parents who send their children to non-public schools. NCLB (No Child Left Behind) is a bad policy because it does not take into account factors such as poorer school districts and the like. Rather, provide more funding for Head Start and other early-childhood education programs.

Intelligent Design has no place in public schools

While controversial, Intelligent Design has a place -- classes are taught every Sunday at your house or at the house of worship of your choice. However, it doesn't belong in the public schools because it introduces faith and religion into the public schools -- a state program -- and church doctrine does not belong in state programs.
