OUR TURN: WOULD “PUT PARENTS IN CHARGE” BE GOOD FOR OUR STATE?

Hmmm. Putting parents in charge of their children’s education? I don’t know. It seems like state government has done a bang-up job so far. We instituted a lottery to fund K-12 programs and college scholarships, but now with lottery sales down, there’s not as much money.
Wait a minute.
What explains why half of our high school freshmen won’t graduate? Maybe new schools with state-of-the-art dry erase boards will help. Oops. That’s not it either.
Decisions about our children’s education should be made in our homes - not by
Our children deserve the best education we can give them, and parents should be allowed the flexibility to help provide it. Why should we have to make a law to "Put Parents in Charge?" They should already be.
