    Parents are the primary educators of their children. Vouchers will empower those that engage their duties to educate their children and create a free-market that is responsive to the individual needs of children. Top-down control spreads mediocrity. Also, we must keep curriculum decentralized to prevent it from being used to control our children's fact base and thought process.

    America’s government schools have a public, not private, purpose. This public purpose, in our democratic republic, is to prepare and graduate students who can practice critical self-government, and vote for enlightened representatives. The issue is not charters vs. traditional public schools, but that both carry out their civic function to create citizens.

    The city needs to focus on making sure all its residents have access to quality pre-k education and local public schools. There are some great public schools in the Indianapolis area and we need to take what is working and apply it to schools that need opportunities. I want to involve more teachers in the process of determining if and how charter schools are developed.
