Other than beloved NCLB, what public education policy has the GOP come up with over the last twenty years? Locally the GOP's education policy has been to ignore education it unless criticizing or severely cutting back on the system. There isn't but a small paragraph on education on the GOP's local platform.

I wouldn't say the GOP is anti-education. I would say they just don't want to pay for it.

Steven you are kind. I would say that they are anti-education precisely because they don't want to pay for it. We spend our money on the things that we value and republicans whether they be on the national or the local political scene do not want to invest money in education, they want to find ways to do it on the cheap.
