Education

2ndVote recognizes the importance of education policy and how vital it is for America to continue being a leader in a global economy.  However, 60+ years of an ever-increasing federal and national oversight in education has led to a weakened quality of education in our country.  2ndVote researches two of the most contentious issues in education today: Common Core and School Choice.

Common Core was once a state-driven program designed to improve educational standards that has become a federally hijacked and co-opted program where competition was replaced by the promise of federal tax dollars.

Similarly, School Choice plays an intricate role in the future of our education system. School choice demands competition and encourages innovation and heightened expectations for our community’s schools. Allowing parents to choose alternate means that best fits their child’s needs will force our struggling or lagging districts to make the necessary changes to keep up with the rest of the world.

Color Key:

2. Lean Liberal
3. Neutral
4. Lean Conservative
5. Conservative
