79. I believe in results and data.
Finnish schools out perform ours.

Rather than wasting time with Bush-sucking No child left behind BS and constantly testing to provide a rationale for closing schools with an absurdly low tax base to support them to increase the size of classes for students that come from poor families that have been underexposed to ideas and education growing up, we should make school the one place where we can attempt to elevate and equalize the education experience as much as possible.

Punishing schools and teachers by deprivation of funds is empty political BS rhetoric that accomplishes nothing. It is like putting a starving man on a diet to to teach the local food shelf a lesson about the value of food. It makes no sense.
