The Problem

Even after decades of pouring money into public education, America continues to fall farther behind other nations. Test scores are down and increased government involvement has done nothing but make the problem worse. Children are trapped in failing schools while unions protect bad teachers and put their interests ahead of the students’ needs.

The Solution

Fixing education in America is simple, but it won’t be easy. To put the success of the students first, we need to focus on getting more parents involved in schools, and giving parents more choice in where their children go to school. If we allow schools to compete for students, and let funding follow the students, schools will better manage their funds and improve performance rapidly.
