Generations of federal involvement in education policies have produced poorer and poorer results. Showering educational institutions with federal dollars may have had the reverse effect of hardening a liberal bias in our colleges and further removing primary and secondary education from parental control.
The Conservative Party believes our schools must return to teaching American history, values and civics in place of a generic curriculum entitled social studies. Our children must be taught that our nation is a force for good.
The Conservative Party Supports:
- Competition in education through vouchers, tax credits and school choice.
- Homeschooling and charter schools, which are important options that all levels of government must recognize and support.
- The Federal Department of Education needs to be phased out with its responsibilities and multi-billion dollar budget returned to the states.
- Ending federal funding for educational institutions that stifle free speech.
