Candidate Profile

In May of 2010, the examiner posted a candidate profile for Jim Huffman in which it stated that he favored vouchers and the DC program.

He believes education is a state and local issue, but at the federal level, school choice and charter schools should be expanded, and the successful voucher program in Washington, D.C. should be renewed. 

 

Campaign Website Statement

Education

Education is primarily a state and local responsibility, but the federal government can play a role as a catalyst for reform. Competition and school choice should be a standard feature of our school systems across America. Congress should continue to encourage states to expand charter schools, and it should continue the Washington DC voucher program that is currently slated to end in 2011.
