Education
As a Harris County School Trustee, I am passionate about the education of our children. The dropout rate in Harris County is too high. The problem is that the federal government has too much involvement with educating our children and the parents are not involved enough. The Federal government must give education back to the parents, school districts and the states. Nowhere in our Constitution does it say that the government has a role to fund or control schools. Local government and parents should have the final say in educating their children not the federal government. I believe that tax credits should be given to parents to assist in the cost of their children attending public, private, parochial, religious, and home schools. I also believe that our teachers should receive tax credits to ease their financial burden and to allow them to focus on excelling as educators.
