Yes, she is an advocate for expanded vouchers so every kid gets one.....good for any school in the district......

She's out to bust the teachers unions and their monopolies who seem to insure that half the kids who graduate from 'high school' can barely read at 7th grade level, and 25% at the 5th grade level.

It's so bad the armed forces have had to dumb down instruction manuals to fifth grade levels.......

So...public schools in many places - FAIL - miserably and it's the 'public system' monopoly - pushed by 70 years of teachers unions and administrations, with a top-down direction from Washington from everything from school lunches to politically correct bullsh*t Common Core rewrite of American history.........and zillions of 'strings' attached to any funding for any purpose.....to insure you dance to the tune of the fiddlers in DC

She's managed to expand school vouches to over 400,000 kids now.....who have a choice.

As apposed to Obama who tried to kill school vouchers to please his teachers unions and their annual tens of millions in campaign donations to the dem party each election cycle.......in exchange for ...killing school vouchers!.......

We have too many bad teachers. Or ineffective ones.

We have too many students disrupting class with no way to discipline most.......

Folks are very happy with 'school choice'. Rather than 'national education'......

Half the Department of Education could be chopped. Maybe more. Save us a bundle. What is it they do, anyway? Other than generate paper, require schools to fill in hundreds of forms a year slicing and dicing student 'populations' by minorities, ethnicity, country of origin......and on and on..

I've seen first hand the waste and abuse...My sister worked ten years of 'education programs' trying to provide database reports on the various 'initiatives' and 'grants' given out. The only thing the people who got access to the database wanted was ways to 'spin' the results to be good no matter whether there was any 'good results' or not.....select the parameters, datasets, sub sets, fudge factors...until they got the result from the 'data' they wanted......not the actual result........ you know the answer - positive outcome but MORE funding required to 'expand' the program and keep providing the 'long term benefit'. More funding! Data in....data mostly ignored......selective use of 'filters', time intervals, subsets, then could 'prove' just about anything.....
