The best plan would be getting government out.

The best plan would be getting government out. Making children accountable to government is not good. Test scores do not make better learners.

The Democrats have a 7-decade history of buying votes via handouts of various kinds. That's what it's all about to them -- vote for me, or the monthly checks will stop. They've used that scare tactic in every election, and this one is no exception.

If that's what you base your vote on, you should re-evaluate your world view.

Some reasons why our education system needs changes:

* half of our adults are on welfare.
* more then half of our college graduates in science, engineering, and chemistry were born in other countries.
* half of our doctors, and engineers are from other countries.
* about twenty thousand American companies are now owned by foreign investors.
* high unemployment.
* technology with smart phones, computers, American car engines, transmissions,etc, are designed by foreign engineers.

We spend a record amount on education. Standardized tests hasn't worked, and maybe we should go back to the 50's.
