Working in the inner-city and as a child clinical psychotherapist, I witnessed first-hand how a poor educational system can negatively impact a community. Education and schools is a very serious topic for me. I'm an advocate of disbanding the Education Department and bringing more authority under local control. Local communities know what's best for their community. Families know what's best for their family. I dislike bureaucrats in Washington D.C. implementing regulations onto our local schools. My daughter will be starting kindergarten next year. Just like you, I want my child to have the best education we can offer.
