Gail Lightfoot on Education
2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (CA)
Lightfoot selected, "Very important."
Lightfoot added, "Rapid advancement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics mean a greater understanding of the same will be needed by individuals in the future. Keeping up will be a challenge that our young people will embrace naturally, given the opportunity."
A: NO. Not all taxpayers want children to pray. Since taxpayers must fund public schools, the schools must be NEUTRAL as to religion and many other things that a private school can teach or endorse. Oppose government schools and prayer in any that exist.
A: YES. There are better ways to encourage life long learning. Those parents who know this need to be able to choose the school (education model) that best suits them and their child's learning style. We need flexibility in education to meet the needs of each individual learner. Support vouchers as an interim measure to closing all government schools.
