Josh Mandel on Education

 

 


Allow parents to choose their children's schools

During his four years in the Legislature, Treasurer Mandel devoted a significant amount of energy toward the issues of restoring fiscal discipline, expanding school choice, improving the state's business climate through free market principles, and protecting family values and The Constitution.

Expand school choice to public, charter, & private schools

Whether it's home-schooling, private schools, public schools or charter schools, I believe the choice of what's best for children should be in the hands of their parents--not some bureaucrat in Columbus. I believe that applying free market principles to the education world will make all ships rise, and ultimately produce stronger, more disciplined and better educated children to compete and succeed in the global marketplace.

I recently had the honor of speaking to thousands of parents and children who were rallying at our Statehouse for the expansion of school choice. Representing various races, religions and socioeconomic classes, these families came from all corners of the state to brave the cold and have their voices heard regarding our fight to expand educational opportunities in Ohio.

This is an issue that should bring together Republicans, Democrats and Independents, as it is foundational to the strength and prosperity of our nation.

Mandel supports the CC Voters Guide question on vouchers

Christian Coalition publishes a number of special voter educational materials including the Christian Coalition Voter Guides, which provide voters with critical information about where candidates stand on important faith and family issues. The Christian Coalition Voters Guide summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Vouchers that allow parents to choose private school for their children"
