Dan Bongino on Education

 


Schools must inspire next generation of engineers & doctors

Q: Do you believe the federal government should place more emphasis on increasing the number of young Americans who pursue careers in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, or not?

Bongino selected, "Yes."

Bongino added, "Inspiring the next generation of engineers, doctors, and scientists begins with our primary schools and teachers. I fully support the implementation of tools such as parent choice vouchers, charter schools, and merit based pay systems for educators. In addition, we must reward good teachers, the bedrock of our educational system, and allow them to work in a system not stifled by bureaucracy and archaic work rules. Our educational goals in math, science, and every other industry should not simply be to 'keep pace with the world,' but to be the BEST in the world."

Supports school choice vouchers and charter schools

Our current educational model is failing our children as we fall farther behind our global competitors in performance. I fully support the implementation of tools such as school choice vouchers, charter schools, merit based pay systems for educators, "parent triggers" and year round schooling. In addition, we must reward good teachers, the bedrock of our educational system, and allow them to work in a system not stifled by bureaucracy and archaic work rules.

Supports school choice vouchers and charter schools

These tools all have the potential to turn our system into a world leader in achievement. Although I believe a number of these changes must originate at the local level, I will engage with local leaders and support legislation that helps us to reach our goals. Continued failure is not an option and is simply a surrender to those among us that are vested in the status quo.
