Jack Schiff Position Paper on Education Reform in Georgia
Editor's Note: The following is a press release issued by the Jack Schiff election campaign.

CUMMING, Ga. -- Candidates talk about education reform and re-inventing the classroom but few have moved from conversation to action. A champion for education, an innovator in helping our best and brightest students achieve academic excellence and the Founder of a Student Focused nonprofit, Jack Schiff is the only candidate in the race for Georgia Senate Dist. 27 with the passion and experience to bring about Innovative Quality Education which is the foundation of every community.

When companies look to relocate or expand their footprint almost all ask about the quality of schools in the areas where they are considering relocation. When people buy a home, the most often asked question is about the rating of schools in the area they are considering to live and work.

"I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all model," Schiff said. "While I do believe school programs should be rigorous and have a standard by which levels of learning are measured and educator’s evaluated, I am opposed to Common Core. A nationalized, federated curriculum is imposing. It gives little credit to the parents to pick and choose what their children read or to have open and honest dialog about social issues and it limits the teaching environment to teach to a test."

Schiff added, "Bottom line, maintaining American preeminence requires a world-class system of education, with high standards in which all students can reach their potential. At the same time, we need to embrace new pathways for students to choose when looking for careers in the non-traditional post-secondary education world."
