Jan Brewer on Education

 


Performance-based funding plan, instead of attendance-based

I'm so proud the Arizona Legislature joined me last year in funding the Move on When Reading program. Beginning now, schools across Arizona must develop comprehensive reading assessments to identify students falling behind. With the help of the State, local schools will connect students with reading experts.

And that brings us to school funding. Whatever your point of view, we should all agree that it's time we start funding the academic results we want to see. What I am proposing is the nation's first comprehensive performance funding plan for our districts and charter schools. This plan will reward schools that earn high marks or see real improvement in performance. I'm not talking about scrapping attendance-based funding formulas. Rather, this will augment that system with an innovative approach to promoting school performance, while maintaining local control. Together, let's stop simply funding the system we have and start funding the student achievement we want.

We lead in school choice: district, private, or charter

Isn't it astonishing that in Arizona today, Bill Gates would not be considered qualified to teach students about computer science? We must stop our gate keeping and open the doors to all qualified and skilled citizens who want to teach our children.

That said--teachers are only one part of the education equation. Engaged parents must balance educators' contributions and play an active role in their children's learning. No teacher can ever substitute for an involved parent. But we must give parents the ability to make the best choices for their children.

Starting with where they go to school. We lead the nation in school choice. In Arizona --a parent's right to choose the best school must endure--whether that's a district, private, charter or home school. We must also arm parents with the information they need to help monitor their children's academic progress. We will make sure they have up-to-date data that is available on-line --at any time.

Supports education vouchers for public or private school.

Brewer supports the CC survey question on school vouchers

The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Education vouchers that allow parents to choose public or private school for their children"
