“I support returning the amount of money parents would spend on public schools to parents who wish to enroll their children in private schools. The same for parents who wish to use these funds for home schooling purposes. This is a compromise. Ideally politician would not intervene in the education process and people would not have that money stolen from them by the government for that purpose.”
“Over 90% of mass killings of innocent people in the USA occur in so-called "Gun Free Zones." - including schools. Each time politicians recite condolences then do nothing. Stop the madness and end "Gun-Free Zone" mandates. People legally qualified to carry open or concealed firearms should be able to defend the innocent everywhere, including schools (Unless the institution has its own ban).”
“Treat people equally under the law. This means all branches of the government, and government funded institutions should treat people equally regardless of their demographic category. I was the only Lt. Governor candidate to support this principal (MCRI) in the 2006 election cycle. Private individuals, and the organizations they form, have a natural right to freedom of association. ”
Michigan Board of Education
I am a candidate for Michigan Board of Education. State Board Constitutional Responsibilities That provision of the State Constitution means, in effect, that the State Board has many direct supervisory duties in connection with local school districts and community colleges and indirect coordinating duties for the four-year state colleges and universities. Specific state laws and court decisions have detailed the Board's responsibilities and extended its supervisory powers over nonpublic education. The eight voting members of the Michigan State Board of Education are elected at-large on the partisan statewide ballot for eight-year terms. Two are elected every two years in the general election. In addition, there are two non-voting, ex officio members -- the Governor and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, who is chairman of the Board. Any vacancies on the Board which occur between elections are filled through appointment by the Governor for the remainder of the term. The State Board elects its own officers for two-year terms. It also selects and appoints the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, who administers the Michigan Department of Education, and the State Board Executive who directs State Board operations.
