Many parents in the 13th district are not familiar with the benefits of school choice; it creates healthy competition with local public schools, it ensures parents have parental rights and a voice, and it is included in the taxes citizens already pay. I support parents' right to school choice with vouchers, working to create smart children that will grow into role models, business owners, and a future generation of presidents, congressmen, and congresswomen.
"School vouchers give parents the freedom to choose a private school for their children, using all or part of the public funding set aside for their children’s education. Under such a program, funds typically spent by a school district would be allocated to a participating family in the form of a voucher to pay partial or full tuition for their child’s private school, including both religious and non-religious options." - EdChoice. If we want to see any improvement in the conditions of the 13th District, we must ensure that our children are not starting behind. As your congressman in the 13th District, I'll fight to ensure that our district's failing public schools and their school boards improve their failing institutions by allowing school choice with vouchers. This will encourage competition, motivating public schools to better structure their curriculums and budgets.
Let's break it down: Children today are learning more about social issues and identity politics than they are about being productive, financially stable, and honorable human beings. Regardless of political affiliation, gender, sex, or nationality, all sensible parents agree children should be learning how to solve problems using their heads. This starts with subjects like Science, Math, English, and History. We can no longer afford to send our children to these failing institutions to learn identity politics. I stand for the parents in the 13th District, and will support school choice with vouchers.
I am a living example of what education can do for a young man in unfavorable conditions. With a lack of guidance in my neighborhood, I was lucky to receive my post-secondary education at B.O.C.E.S (Boards of Cooperative Educational Services), an adult vocational school teaching and certifying citizens in cosmetology, welding, brick masonry, and more. Through B.O.C.E.S. many became certified as an RN or like me, became a mechanic. B.O.C.E.S. provided child care programs for their students, allowing single mothers and fathers to take the path to higher wage jobs as well. I am an example of how investing in people changes communities for the better.
Listen to a 60-second clip in which Caesar explains his experiences during the 1980 presidential election between Republican Ronald Reagan and Democrat Jimmy Carter. Proper education changed Caesar's life for the better.
