Education needs to be returned to State and Local communities. The fallacy of Federal intrusion in public education via reduced or free meal services, is the number of children benefiting; it is not even 30%. The method of determining qualification should be scrutinized, NOT FOR EXCLUSION but for ABUSE. Exaggeration! Using children to pad the need in order to justify Federal control of Education.
The Federal Government has created a log jam in the education of our next generation; they have burdened teachers with more time spent on reporting statistics than teaching. Whether you call it Common Core, No Child Left Behind, or whatever the next fiasco is called, the Federal Government needs to be removed from the process of education and return all powers and legislation to the States.
The lucrative breakfast program which ONLY SERVES 29% of the students
- Is a source for extra revenue for the school district
- Is a source of questionable accounting in that instructional minutes are being designated for students eating breakfast!!
Do not presume my forthright and common sense will see me through June 3rd. Primaries held outside a Presidential election year are notoriously for a low turnout. Your vote is vital to send a strong candidate up against Brad Sherman in November.
We need a Representative who DOES NOT place Foreign policy and global economics before our district interests.
We need a Congressman to represent us in Washington DC.
Mark Reed - elect me to Congress - it starts with voting on June 3rd. Mark your ballot Reed. www.ElectMarkReed.com
