Nancy Mace on Education

 

 


Strongly supports educational choice

The answer to many of America's problems is not government, Mace will tell you. In regard to education, Mace says the federal government is "hurting more than helping." She strongly supports educational choice, but believes any reform to education must be made locally. "Parents, teachers, and local schools, in that order, should be the individuals setting education policy and making decisions about how to educate our young people."

Endured college coursework, plus ROTC, with ADD

Everyone who has heard about the Corps knows about the marching, the haircuts, the pushups, and the demanding life. What most people forget however, is that the Citadel is a college, and college means academics. Knob year is not boot camp, it is college with boot camp, and the administration never lets you forget it. From the moment you check into the barracks and experience your first orientation meeting as a freshman, you are continually reminded that academics are your first priority at The Citadel.

It took all my determination to convince myself that I could cope with academics and military life at the same time. I'd worked hard to overcome my ADD, but on the night before class resumed, all the odd anxiety came flooding back. What if I couldn't do this after all? I took deep breaths and tried to focus. "You can do this, you can do this", I told myself.

The academic schedule I had chosen for myself was intimidating: ROTC, accounting, math, calculus, English, and health.

Pro-local education, according to PVS survey.

Mace opposes the PVS survey question on education standards

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Education: Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
