Nothing is more important to our future than educating our next generations.
Yet, depending on which rating you choose, New Mexico ranks 48th, 49th or dead last in the nation for education. That is simply unacceptable.
With our diverse population, Native American communities, and other factors, New Mexico faces unique challenges when it comes to meeting education needs. Parents understand that. Teachers understand that. We all understand that.
Who doesn’t understand? Bureaucrats in Washington, DC.
As a voice for New Mexico in the U.S. Senate, Gary Johnson will fight to get the Washington bureaucrats out of the way and let New Mexicans provide the tools, the curriculum and the innovations that will offer our kids the educations they need and deserve.
Teachers want to teach...not test. Parents want their kids to be students...not statistics.
As Governor, Gary saw first hand the absurdity of sending our tax dollars to Washington, DC, only to have them returned with countless strings attached and the bureaucrats’ “cut” deducted.
State and local governments should control education policy. Decisions that affect our children should be made here at home, not by bureaucrats and politicians in Washington, D.C., who are incapable of providing the innovation, choices and understanding that are needed here in New Mexico.
