In the 2016 election, Americans must hold the candidates accountable for their views on education. Candidates should be asked where they stand on the Every Child Achieves Act and the Student Success Act, which try to replace No Child Left Behind with more legislation that removes local control from schools. Candidates should be asked if they support schools controlled by parents, or if they favor schools that are bound by Common Core’s obnoxious standardized tests.
Education should not be pushed to the back burner in the 2016 election. Eagle Forum knows that the quality of education that our students receive fundamentally determines the future of America. Because of this, we have created a “STOP Common Core Pledge” so that voters will know who will stand up against bad policies in education. We need a president and Congress who will oppose any attempt to reauthorize a federal role in public education.
