I got a email today from congressman Charlie Wilson Ohio 6th.
I’d like to hear from you! Periodically, I will reach out to you and ask for your opinion on important issues facing Congress. I value your opinion.
I hope you will take the time to answer this quick one-question survey and sign up for my e-newsletter to receive occasional updates on important issues and services for you and your family.
Member of Congress
Ohio’s 6th District
He included a multiple choice question.
What are the greatest challenges facing our educational systems?
quality of education
lack of access
Ok, where do I start Congressman Wilson, First off the constitution does not give the federal government any over site of a states education. There is no reason to have a department of education. We don’t need three levels of bureaucracy to tell a teacher how to teach. The Billions of dollars that are wasted every year for the department of education is taxpayer money that can be saved. It is first the local school board with guidance from the state which sets a uniform standard for their citizens. You will say that since a past congress voted for it we must maintain it. NO, it is not in the constitution so it is unconstitutional. You want to improve America, then eliminate the unconstitutional parts of the government and the tax money that they waste.
Ohio needs to make education its top priority, not by limiting choice but by expanding it. The citizens of Ohio need to pay attention and elect people who only care about the children to the local school boards.
You need to do your part and follow the constitution and the people need to do theirs and be responsible.
