Our State is ranked 47th in the nation in educational standards. This standard is unacceptable.

We must change the state of our schools by providing more funding to schools and allowing individual districts and schools and teachers the freedom to do what they think is best to teach their students. The federal government has no business mandating how teachers should teach their students. Every classroom is different and Common Core and No Child Left Behind have only stripped teachers of their ability to properly teach their own students. These policies should be left to those who best know how make policy, not those in the federal government.
